Oriental Hand-made Rugs

The art of oriental carpet weaving originated more than 2,500 years ago. Oriental carpets and rugs were initially woven as articles of necessity to cover the floors of nomadic tribesmen, giving them protection from the cold and damp. The natural progression of the skill and craft involved in the creation of these works of art has been passed down from generation to generation over the centuries.

Oriental carpets are renowned for their richness of colour, variety of spectacular artistic patterns and quality of design. In palaces, famous buildings, mansions and museums the world over, an oriental carpet is amongst the most treasured of possessions.
