Persian rugs are known for their detailed floral designs, sometimes with a pronounced center medallion and sometimes with a repeating all over pattern. Because they are so intricate they tend to have a higher knot count. It's a bit like digital photography: if you have a very detailed image, you need more dots per square inch to show the detail. So, with a very intricate pattern on a rug, you need a lot of knots per square inch to show the design.
Persians are also known for their diverse colour pallet. The number of colours in each rug ranges from 15 to 25, giving customers huge flexibility in terms of style and decor. Commonly known Persian designs include Kashan, Kerman, Isfhan and Tabriz.
