There are hundreds of Persian villages weaving carpets and rugs and is still very much a thriving cottage industry today. In fact in all my years traveling to these villages I have yet to see any type of manufacturing. All the rugs we source from Persian villages are made in homes or small workshops next to the family home where people from the same family work together. They are very knowledgeable about their art and are very proud of all the rugs they produce. The materials used with all traditional village rugs are Warp – cotton, Weft cotton or wool and Pile wool.
