ECO official terms Persian Carpet as Iran's cultural flag

While the world has admitted to Persian Persian carpet originality, he noted, “At the same time, the importance of carpet business issues should also be considered.

Persian Carpet is an inseparable item from Iranian art and culture. It is one of the most distinguished manifestations of Persia with records in the Ancient Persia (c.500 BC). The “traditional skills of carpet weaving” in Fars Province and Kashan City were inscribed as “Intangible Cultural Heritage” list of UNESCO in 2010.

The pattern of carpets reminds you of the Persian garden which is full of florae, birds, and other animals. Wool, cotton, and silk are the most common materials in carpet weaving.

Traditional dyes used in Persian carpets are taken from plants and insects. As an example, red from “Madder”, yellow from “onion”, and black from “Oak apples”.
