Vintage Persian carpets from Rocking Carpets

Be warned! Our vintage Persian carpets are true heavyweights! This is because the hand-knotted carpets have a high knot density (and are usually much larger) than traditional oriental carpets. Persian carpets are world-renowned for their vibrant colours and creative patterns with symmetrical decorative elements and motifs. A large, central field surrounded by a border decorated with floral motifs or other curvilinear designs is typical of Persian carpets.

Vintage Persian carpets – a rich tradition of carpet-making

The tradition of Persian carpet-making, practised by Iranian nomadic tribes, villages and royal court manufactories, is considered as belonging to humankind’s intangible cultural heritage. The high-quality workmanship that goes into making these carpets is a tradition that has been practised for centuries, and explains why Persian carpets cost more. But how many of us can boast of having an original Persian carpet embellishing our home?

Quality and design – true perfection

An authentic Persian carpet is only knotted by hand, and a large carpet with a very high knot density can take up to one-and-a-half years to finish! Every hand-picked vintage Persian carpet undergoes a sophisticated treatment process before it makes its way into your home. This includes cleaning, colour neutralisation, clipping the pile and drying the carpet under the warm southern sun. When this process is finished, the vintage Persian carpets are like rediscovering a treasure from an ancient, oriental palace.

If you are not willing to sacrifice quality and originality, take the time to browse through our huge selection of vintage Persian carpets. You might prefer a multi-coloured carpet, but maybe you prefer a natural Persian carpet left in its original state. Or maybe it’ll be a case of love at first sight and you’ll fall for the first one you see?
