Persian Carpets

Every year in Dubai there is an activity called Global Village,
this is a place where many countries come together and show their crafts
and traditions, it has been running for the last 15 years.
It runs for about four months in the cooler season.
Today I would like to show you the Iranian pavilion with their beautiful
hand made carpets, the colours and designs are stunning. 

These pictures show you the underside of the carpets.

Aladdin couldn't make up his mind...  

Look at the knots on these beauties, so fine and tidy.

Here is the front of Persian art.

So many patterns to choose from.

Seven layers of design.

I hope you enjoyed me taking you along to Global Village.
Have a lovely week.


  1. On your next post.. could you take us to the Thai food pavillion please? I need a close up of those shrimps in the tom yum soup... and those yummy shrimp sticks.. my mouth is watering as I think about it... How about you wrap it up and send it in a package? Love you!

  2. A Persian rug has a wide variety designs and styles, and trying to organize them in to a category is a very difficult task. Persian rugs are made up of a layout and a design which in general included one or a number of motifs. The Iran Carpet Company, a specialist in the subject, has attempted to classify Persian carpet designs and has carried out studies of thousands of rugs. Their results show that there have been slight alterations and improvements to almost all original designs.
