The royal blue field with an allover trellis of enlarged palmettes and vinery in ivory, pale blue and brown within a dense sand palmette and vinery border. 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 beautiful 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.
