The tradition of carpet weaving in Iran goes back several hundred years old. Iranian carpet weavers invented delicate styles many years before their competitors. Western culture shows a keen interest in importing Persian hand-woven carpets since the sixteenth century. In addition to its historical value, the Iranian handmade vase’s design carpet is also remarkably charming and of high quality. These carpets are vase’s design because of the position of the vase in the carpet design. Of course, this vase sometimes takes an abstract form, and sometimes it is not in the carpet design.
