Silk used to be a material exclusive to China until silkworms were smuggled out of the country. Then, other countries like Iran, specifically in the provinces of Gilan and Mazandaran near the Caspian Sea, as well as Turkey, started producing it.
Fine Persian silk rugs are in the cities of Isfahan, Ghom, Nain, and Kashan. While in Turkey fine silk rugs are made in the cities of Hereke and Kayseri using silk. In addition, certain rugs had a silk warp and wool pile, while certain pattern details were created using silk.
The majority of the artwork featured animals such as lions, tigers, and rams. Some of the animals were borrowed from Chinese art, including spotted dragons and horned, deerlike beasts.
Currently, the majority of modern rugs are made using artificial silk. Although they may resemble authentic silk rugs at first glance, they vary in terms of their resilience and longevity.
