Antique Senneh rugs come from the northwest region of Iran. The weavers who created Senneh rugs speak the Senneh dialect, and this language identity provides the classification for the type of antique oriental rugs. Created by hand, these rugs exemplify tapestry as artistic artifacts. These Persian tapestries are some of the most beautiful in existence, and they are also one of the easiest types to identify.
