Gyaan Dose: 10th April 2013: The Persian Rug
  • Starting a new series of discussions called the "Gyaan Dose". Here I'll be sharing the random piece of trivia / fun facts I gather over the internet. Here's One: 

    An old Persian proverb..“A Persian rug is perfectly imperfect, and precisely imprecise.”
    Traditional handmade Persian rugs have intentional flaws because the makers feel that only Allah is perfect and has the right to create perfectly. 
    One of the ways to identify a handmade Persian from a machine made product is to search for flaws. In effect, a flawed carpet is worth more than a perfect carpet .
