The Persian Rugs at Nile Arts
|"Tabriz is probably the biggest handmade rug-producing center in the world, and most definitely one of the very oldest. Anybody who knows anything about Persian rugs, will know something about Tabriz rugs. The enchanted city of Tabriz fully developed more than a thousand years ago. After the many invasions, hostile takeovers and wars that the envied Persian nation went through, Tabriz took the lost and ancient ways of the past and created a monster of a rug exporting industry to supply beautiful carpets to the whole world. One of the finest eras of Persian rug weaving was the Saffavid period, which started in 1502 when the Saffavids conquered the Turks who had captured Tabriz. The Saffavids continued to rule Persia until the mass invasion of Afghanistan in 1722. Today, many rugs produced in Tabriz are attempting to follow the incredible artistry, which was the Persian Safavid rugs. Tabriz and many other parts of Iran were invaded by the Arabs, Turks, Mongolians, and a few other nations repeatedly. This was mainly because the country was very rich in natural resources, full of beautiful architechture, and genuis craftsmanship which always made the surrounding civilizations very jealous. The Persians also had some of the most incredible literary writings any one had ever seen. Tabriz managed to keep these ancient Persian traditions alive, in spite of all the conquering and greed. Today when a big rug retailer somewhere in the world wants a specific pattern woven by hand on a rug, Tabriz is the city that he goes to. Tabriz is truly a magnificent figure in Persian history and the handmade carpet industry."|

alone sells this rug. These marvelous rugs are produced in the city of
Nain and the surrounding area, which is located in central Iran about 60
miles east of Isfahan. A favorite of many Persian rug admirers, the Nains
