Redefining traditions- The Persian Saga

For the longest time, when people talked of traditional rugs, they were referring to a well-known Persian rug type with fringes, a border, and classical design scheme. With the introduction of the contemporary area rugs, a whole new genre of décor has emerged. These rugs are manufactured with hands using a modern hand tufting technique, and the ones of even higher quality are generally hand knotted. Just like the traditional carpets and rugs have been for hundreds of years, but the difference here is in their design appeal where is crafted with a traditional design approach and the other, with a contemporary one.
