Finding the Right persian-rugs for You

Make a bold statement in a living room or bedroom by incorporating vintage Persian rugs in your home decor.

A Persian carpet lends an aura of prestige to any room, even today. The fascination with Persian rugs dates at least as far back as the 4th century B.C., when historian Xenophon referred to the “soft rugs on which the Persians sit.” For centuries, Iran (modern-day Persia) has been known for the craftsmanship, intricate patterns and artistry of its carpets, which have found their way into households and museums around the world.

Although they have many imitators, real Persian rugs are made only in Iran and are easily recognized by their vibrant colors and elegant patterns.

Traditional, or antique, Persian rugs are what most people identify as “authentic.” Hand-made, they are very durable and, if properly cared for, can be passed down from generation to generation. Modern Persians, on the other hand, are often machine-made. Today’s carpets, Iranian or otherwise, can’t possibly match the level of craftsmanship that prevailed centuries ago, so historical Persian carpets will always be admired and highly valued.

Although the machine-aided production process is much faster and cheaper, the resulting rugs typically do not have the same quality or lifespan as handwoven ones, so traditional options are considered better investments.

To distinguish between the two, look for imperfections. Because traditional Persian rugs are handwoven, you will likely see small flaws on the front and back. With a machine-made imitation, on the other hand, you will probably not find stitching glitches, and the back will have a mesh or plastic covering.

Antique rugs are handmade from the finest materials, including wool, silk or cotton — never synthetic fibers. The fibers used in antique rugs are colored using natural dyes derived from insects and plants and woven into bold designs that reflect Iran’s culture and history. Since Persian tribes traditionally raised and herded sheep, wool was the most common material. The fiber has many advantages: It is fire-resistant and dries much more quickly than cotton. Also, because of its natural elasticity, it is more durable than cotton or silk. Regarded as works of art, Persian rugs can take months or years to complete.

The different types of Persian rugs are named for the cities, villages and regions where they’re made. Kashan rugs, for example, woven in the north-central Iranian city of Kashan, are considered among the finest city rugs, distinguished by curvilinear motifs like palmettos, leaves and arabesques. Nains have high knot counts, an indication of high quality, and generally employ pink, blue and ivory hues, while Tabriz rugs — created by weavers in the northwestern Iranian city of Tabrīz (or Tabriz) — mostly have floral and garden patterns. 

When shopping for vintage Persian rugs, you'll want to consider color, size and more — for a history of these rugs and tips on how to style yours, visit our guide to these woven creations today.

Find Tabriz rugs, handmade silk Persian rugs, Persian tribal rugs and other antique and vintage rugs from the world's best furniture dealers on 1stDibs.

    An overdyed Persian rug refers to a rug that has been treated with a specific process and wash — it involves bleaching, color saturation and drying.

    To date a Persian rug, first identify the style of the rug. Look for signs of natural wear and any damage that has been repaired. Vegetable dyes, which fade over time, were commonly used before the 20th century. Modern Persian rugs are occasionally bleached to mimic natural aging, but if you examine the colors closely, you'll be able to tell authentic gradual fading from synthetic defined fading.

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    There are a few red flags you should look for in determining if you have an antique Persian rug. Firstly, check the fringe. Fringes on a Persian rug form from the end of warp yarns, and won’t be sewn on the back. Also check the colors. They should be crisp, with no bleeding of the dyes. Shop a collection of authentic Persian rugs from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    The best way to tell if your Persian rug is real silk is to simply rub the fabric. Silk will get warmer if you rub it, and likely develop a sheen. If neither happens and if the rug feels coarse, then it’s likely not real silk. On 1stDibs, shop a collection of genuine Persian rugs from some of the world’s top sellers.

    Persian rugs that are authentic and hand-knotted are likely to increase in value, but returns to this investment are not expected to be immediate.

  • 1stDibs ExpertAugust 15, 2019

    The difference between Persian and Turkish rugs can be identified through knotting techniques and patterns. Persian rugs are knotted with a single knot, while Turkish rugs employ a double knotting technique. Additionally, Persian rugs typically have more rounded, oriental motifs, whereas Turkish rugs have more geometric designs.

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 3, 2024
    How much authentic Persian rugs are will depend on rarity, condition, demand and more. The price of Persian rugs on 1stDibs starts at approximately $200 or $220 per rug.
