Persian carpet for sale weaving has a long and rich history in Khorasan. The region has been famed for fine antique rugs and carpets going back to Timurid times in the late middle ages. Later, in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Khorassan became a center for the production of high quality room-sized carpets due to its large stable supply of city-based weavers who could accommodate the larger anchored looms required to produce these larger carpets. Although still Khorasan carpets, many of these are sometimes known by more specific sub-region of origin designations such as Meshad or Doroksh.
