Known as the home of the original oriental carpet, Iran (Persia) the oldest and once most powerful empire in the Middle East, stood at the crossroads of Eastern and Western civilizations. Weaving flourished to exceptional heights through the Safavid Dynasty (1502-1736). From having been created out of need by nomadic tribes people, Persian carpets became treasured heirlooms passed on from one generation to the next. Our focus has always been on quality above all else. At Amir's Rug Gallery, you have the opportunity to get a truly unique rug at an incredible price.
