Azin Banu is basically from Kerman but last year her family was settled in Chicago permanently. She says that when they shifted she particularly asked her father to brought carpets from Iran because Iranian Carpets are hand made, beautifully designed, and an important part of the Iranian culture. Many Iranians make their livelihood creating these works of art. As more and more of the world recognizes the quality and beauty of these Iranian carpets the demand grows. In fact demand has grown so much that these carpets (rugs) are now being produced in area that were not known for weaving in the past.
Azin more says that anyone who has ever seen a Iranian Carpet will agree when I say a Iranian Carpet is not just a rug but rather a magnificent work of art with a mix of wonderful hues and patterns. After all this skill has been perfected over 2500 years so who would expect anything less. During ancient times the Iranians were one of the first carpet weavers. Throughout the centuries they have used ingenuity combined with talent to design a carpet that stands out above the rest. If there was an award for excellence in carpets the Iranian Carpets would win hands down.
