The Persian rug weavers in Isfahan were the creators of the designs used in the court rugs of the Safavid Dynasty during the late 16th century. This Dynasty elevated the arts to a new level of excellence that made it famous around the world. The carpets showed off the power and wealth of the Persian courts and the skill of the artisans. These now antique rugs were often used as diplomatic gifts or for exclusive use in the courts and public buildings.
Many of the classic motifs and designs that we recognize today were created during this period. One of the things that stands out about Isfahan rugs is that these classic designs remained into modern times showing the same refinement and level of detail that made them famous. This rug is an excellent example.
