Persian Rugs are famous for their elegance and unique designs. In Iran, carpet weaving has been around for more than 2,000 years. When Cyrus the Great conquered Babylon in 539 B.C, he was amazed by its beauty; many historians believe that it was at that time Cyrus the Great introduced the art of carpet making into Persia. Since then, Persian rugs are a significant part of Persian art and culture. It is such a characteristic feature in the culture that every Persian household has at least a few rugs in their home.
Persian rugs are amongst the most valued of possessions, found in palaces, famous buildings, mansions, and museums around the world. One of the main reasons that make Persian rugs so unique is the vast diversity between each design. There is no set color or pattern; in fact, we have over 20 different cities that each use various and intricate designs and colors and are well-known for their style. That’s ultimately what makes Persian rugs so unique, and each one has its own story.
Since Geev stands for Persian wearable art, we aspired to bring the beauty of Persian rugs to our designs, and introduce a new way to represent the fascinating Persian culture to our audience.
