CARPETS ORIGINS


Carpets are usually classified depending on the area where they are made and the ethnic group which manufactures them. The geographic reference is important even from an artistic point of view. As a matter of fact, motifs, symbols and colourings have a strong local connection. Likewise, the technical specifications and manufacturing features of the carpet often indicate its place of origin.


The most common and mentioned styles are the Persian carpets, the Afghan carpets, the Pakistan carpets, the Caucasian carpets, the Indian carpets, the Tibetan carpets, the Turkish and the Chinese carpets.
