Art of Oriental Rugs eBook

The Art of Oriental Rugs – A Weaver’s Perspective

This work is the result of three years of research. It is intended for all levels of knowledge about hand-made rugs made in Iran (Persian*). Although the weaving principles are universal, the main focus is about the beauty and craftsmanship of Iranian weavers.

You can access free lessons on how rugs are woven by clicking below. If you are curious to learn more, my eBook shows you: 1) how to identify a weave** and how different techniques produce “recognizable” variations in different regions, 2) maps with geographical views of where rugs are woven in the country of Iran and how the regional weaves influence each other, and 3) close-up pictures of weaves from 170+ rug-weaving regions in Iran and around the globe. This, I humbly hope, will be seen as an indispensable addition to any library.

Learn how to identify handmade rugs using techniques employed by experts without having years of experience!

If you want a more in depth understanding of how experts identify rugs, then this eBook is what you’ve been searching for.

But first a warning, this eBook is not for everyone. There are many fine books which address history, geography and designs; but they omit an important factor which experts rely on for identification – the specific weave pattern found on the back of the rug. If you wish to go beyond a cursory understanding of rugs, this is the eBook for you.

The Art of Oriental Rugs – A Weaver’s Perspective presents an insider-look which examines what is a weave, what causes it, and how to recognize it. This work is the result of examining hundreds of pieces through three years of intensive research. This is the first extended toolkit of its kind to demonstrate different Persian (Iranian) weaves based on their region and explore why they look the way they do. The goal is to establish generally accepted weave patterns attributed to each rug-weaving region in Iran.

It is more than just samples from Iran however, it also includes pieces from Caucasus, Turkey, China, Turkmen and others.
• With 1200+ pages it provides ample opportunity for an in-depth examination of weaves and provides many samples to aid in identification.
• Depending on your level of interest, you can go as deep as you wish in understanding why weaves look the way they do on the back of each rug.
• This work is intended for larger screens (10 inch or larger) to be able to properly examine pictures including characteristics unique to each piece.

It includes 750+ closeup pictures of weaves from the backs of rugs from 170+ weaving regions around the world, including Iran (Persian), Caucasus, Turkey, China, Turkmen and others. This will aid in identifying rug origins.
It also includes maps of each region with the different weaving types to help better understand how the regions use similar/different weaving techniques.
