Antique Persian rugs can most certainly be called the crème de la crème of all Oriental rugs. Among various types of Oriental antique rugs for sale, the ones from Persia stand out quite substantially due to several unmistakable features. For centuries, their intricate and highly significant patterns have been achieved due to the application of the asymmetric knot, also known as the Persian knot or the Senneh knot, which allows a weaver to attain a higher knot density and thus, a more detailed design. Thanks to such expert craftsmanship, Oriental rugs from Persia developed some of the most iconic motifs.
