THE WORD "CARPET" AS METAPHOR

Within a literary Play of Words, Persian poets often used the word 'Carpet' as a metaphor. It was used to designate a mystical kind of poetry. Therefore, the poet weaves words just as the weaver weaves color and design into the warp and weft.


From at least the 5th Century BC till today, approximately 2500 years, the hand made, knotted pile rug is one of the oldest products of traditional folk art to have survived practically unchanged in all it's essentials.


An antique rug is one that is 100 years or older, a semi-antique rug is between 50 and 100 years old. The older the rug, the more it needs experienced, professional care.
