You Won’t Get a Hand Woven Rug or Carpet Cheaper
Stunning patterns and colors
The art of carpet weaving is steeped in history. Dated back to BC times, a rugmakers job is laborious. Depending on the size of the rug, the weaving could take months to years to create each individual piece. The price reflects the human toil and love put into the production.
Boasting one of Melbourne's largest and finest collection of handmade designer rugs and carpets, Persia House is closing its doors after 25 years. You can pick yourself up a family heirloom for a fraction of the usual price.
Persian rugs are typically designed using one of four patterns and including a small number of 'motifs'. These designs have different meanings.
With thousands of rugs to choose from you'd be hard pressed not to find something that you love. Persia House stocks a range of styles including modern/contemporary, traditional and tribal/nomadic. They have rugs of many sizes (from small to large), hallway runners and a silk collection.
Persian rugs are often considered an investment item so this is a great time to purchase one (or there) and save up to 70% off their premier collection. The most expensive carpet ever sold was a 17th-century Persian carpet for nearly $34 million in 2013. You won't find one for this price at Persia House. If you do then the saving would be mammoth.
Iranian carpets have faced some vigorous competition from countries producing fakes of the original Persian designs. A certificate of authenticity is given to all buyers from Persia House.
