Have a long history, going back to the Golden Age of Oriental carpet weaving.The concept of carpet production came about during the Safavid dynasty. Factory production replaced the village craft of rug-making that had been prevalent up until that time.
These antique Oriental rugs featured simple rectilinear patterns. After 1722, Oriental carpet production declined significantly.
The Afghan invasion took a toll on the region, but - fueled by European demand - production picked up again in the late nineteenth century. This art form was thus revived. This item is in the category "Antiques\Rugs & Carpets". The seller is "dorisleslieblau" and is located in this country: US.
