Encyclopedia > Persian motifs

Persia (Iran) has an ancient tradition of its own design of motifs. These special and unique motifs are used, among others, in the Persian carpet and rug designs and traditional Persian attire. These motifs have a rich history and the Persian language has an extensive terminology concerning the dsign and sorts of these motifs.

Kilims - Persian Carpet Export (3650 words)
Some motifs, however, certainly originated on knotted carpets and were later used by kilim weavers, such as the flower and leaf patterns that are common to north Persian kilims and knotted rugs alike.
Another genuinely symbolic motif is the talismanic evil eye, or ‘nazarlik’, used to deflect evil and to balance the adverse effects of other motifs on the kilim, such as the spider or scorpion.
Persian influences are evident in the random scattering of stylized birds, flowers and human figures in the field of the kilim.
