Northwest Persia

A great many impressive rugs were made in northwest Persia during the 18 and 19 Century. They often display both Persian and Caucasian decorations. Typically Persian palm leaves alternate with the forked tendrils of Caucasian rugs. The Persian design with its elegant lines appears stiff and geometric.
