Hand woven with the finest materials including wool and silk, a single Persian rug can often take years, and sometimes decades to create. A high-quality Iranian carpet can cost tens of thousands of dollars, with antique rugs fetching even higher prices. So how are Persian rugs made, and why are they so expensive?

  • My father told me that in Afghanistan people used to lay down these rugs on the street for cars to drive over them and make them worn off so when westerners came they could by „antic“ carpets lol

  • Really sad the artist can take a year to make one but they are still not appreciated and killing them self's for little to no money and the rich middle man can make tens of thousands. And they wander y no one is doing it no moreits because of their greediness

  • If these craftspeople were paid what they deserve instead of being paid pennies on the dollar, then more people, women and men, would be encouraged to keep this art going for generations to come. They’ll see this as a realistic occupation that can financially support themselves and their families. Greed destroys everything in this world.

  • The people doing the back breaking work are poor and I don't blame their children for not wanting to learn. Maybe if they were paid more other people would start to learn. The sad truth is the less people to weave and higher demand will make others more money then normal.

  • The designs in my carpet never fail to amaze me. After twenty years, I can look and see new designs - or so I think. There are hookahs, small fat caliphs with their big hats, and the designs are equally spaced. What's on one end is on the other end and what's inbetween. The deep blue is still deep blue, the maroons are still deep maroon. It's not in a high traffic area but still, it's been out for twenty years. No frays, no worn spots. I would even hang it on the wall. The carpet is 5' X 7' and has held its' beauty for years. I love it.

  • Those who mean well should help removing the sanctions instead of bashing middlemen. Sanctions r hurting only ppl, not govt. & Iranians need to bring changes towards democratic values. Hv met many Irani girl students who dress very nicely in India but use to dread going back in the same outfit ( they have to cover themselves there). Also most of the students didn't want to go back. Ppl must understand that to make total changes, you need a very strong support of majority, it's not easy. Iran has Lovely carpets, saffron, tea & sweets,(Gaaz?) Why can't we allow them to have exported!

  • Even if the weavers are paid decently, how does that address the health issues? How much does a new back or hands cost? Maybe the young girls have good reasons to abandon these income sources. It’s a pity for the art, but I don’t expect people to trade in their health to preserve it.

  • Handicraft looks pretty, but it takes the life of the handicraft worker. No wonder this art is getting lost. Due to exposure to the fibre wool, the end up having respiratory diseases. They are also paid less, and due to long hours of working in bad posture, they have spine problems as well. In India also there are thousands of such ancient arts are getting lost as well.

  • But yet majority of society supports sexy, perfect body females with no talent, acts immature, “influences” in such a negative way and the fans/supporters make them wealthy asf! Whereas they should support things and people like this so they don’t have to slave til death! There is something so captivating about these fragile, elderly strong women who’s talent and skills are unmatched!!! Sad

  • Funny how the men make all the money and the women get nothing. You deserve to lose this art, sad but true. Change the way you operate or you risk losing that wonderful tradition forever.

  • It will be a sad day when things like this disappear because of mass production, loss of younger people wanting to these kinds of jobs. Im a firm believer that we all owe it to our ancestors to keep these things alive, a few people I know have what I call authentic persians rugs and they are some of the most beautiful places that I've ever seen. I'm currently attempting to find one however I get the feeling it would be cheaper to fly over, buy one and ship it back.
