Historical Insights

The origins of rugs predate major religions. The Pazyryk carpet, discovered through radiocarbon testing, has been dated to the 5th century B.C., making it approximately 2500 years old. However, the intricate weaving techniques, sophisticated design, and construction of this rug imply that the art of carpet weaving likely extends even further, reaching back at least 4000 years. 

Rugs, contrary to some perceptions, are for everyone. While some may associate them solely with Islamic origins, we embrace a broader perspective. Our collection includes pieces featuring symbols from Christianity, nomadic religions, and beyond. Rugs, as an art form, exhibit tolerance, welcoming people of different nationalities and religions from around the world.

At Odyssey Rugs, we celebrate the diversity represented in these woven masterpieces, emphasizing a distinction between nationality and beliefs, fostering respect for various cultures.

Yet, as time marches on, both the art and the knowledge are at risk of fading away. The classification of this art has contributed to its decline in the world market. Odyssey Rugs is on a mission to change this narrative. Our representation tells a story that breaks down assumptions, preserving and revitalizing the essence of this incredible art.

Join us on a journey to rediscover the profound beauty of rugs, where each piece carries a unique story waiting to be shared.
