The Religious Significance of Persian Prayer Rugs

Rug weaving has been a vital part of Iranian culture practically since the dawn of the mighty Persian Empire. This venerable craftsmanship was inseparably connected with the formation of trade in the region and proved to be one of the driving forces for the development of the entire state. In the 7 century A.D., when the Arab conquest brought about the advent of Islam, rugs proved to be the bridge between cultures combining Persian tradition with Islamic art and religion.
