Framing a Persian Rug


We've framed up this amazing Persian Rug this week, a real joy to work on, the detail is incredible and it's so finely stitched...and heavy :-)

We attached the rug to a canvas backing and were then able to stretch that over a frame allowing us to float the piece within the yellow tray. That was in turn framed in an aquamarine frame. You can't really see in the photo, but we chose the yellow and aquamarine to echo some of the background colours in the rug. The finished result looks really beautiful :-)

  1. Hand knotted area rugs are typically made in countries that are world renown in rug weaving with a long history. Iran, also known as Persia in old times, is an undisputed pioneer in the hand knotted rug weaving practice.
