History of flowers in Persian Rugs

The word for flower is Gul in Persian and the national flower of Iran is a Rose.
Mr. Behnam says, “The red rose or Goleh Sorkh has a deeper meaning than just red rose but of the color for love , life and health.”
Historically the flora or curvilinear carpet designs were strictly reproduced by master artist and woven from laid out plans by skilled workers.
