Each rug that Medallion sells is an exquisite work of art, highly prized for its exceptional quality and traditional rug-making techniques. Even today, a handmade area rug is generally woven in one of four settings, categorized as nomadic, village, workshop or master works. There is no mistaking the outstanding craftsmanship that goes into each area rug. In fact, these treasured rugs often become family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation.
If you appreciate ancient cultural traditions, a technique called pile-weaving is truly an ancient craft. The discovery of a carpet in the Siberian mountains was traced to the 5th century B.C. However, the most prolific period of Persian rug-weaving was during the Safavid Dynasty spanning the 16th through 18th centuries. Many tribes developed their own intricate motifs that have been passed down for generations. Today, rug-making tools such as various looms, spindles, design plates and other items have hardly changed through the ages, staying true to the original art form.
