The Magic Carpet

The idea for the legendary magic carpet was first conceived of by Queen Scheherazade during the 9th century CE, when she wove and narrated the tales of One Thousand and One Nights in order to keep King Shahryār captivated long enough to delay her execution at his hands. In the story, there is a young prince by the name of Husain who travels to India and eventually comes across a magic carpet. It is said that the carpet could move by reading the thoughts of its master and would travel to whichever place the master's mind desired. Another legendary story involving a magic carpet is the story of Solomon's carpet. Solomon's carpet was sixty by sixty miles in length and width. The wind followed Solomon's commands when he sat upon his carpet and it would take him anywhere he desired. It was Solomon's pride that would be his ultimate undoing because when Solomon was proud because of his greatness and many accomplishments, the wind blew and blew and the carpet shook and 40,000 people fell to their deaths. Flying carpets have been made famous in pop culture, with the most popular one being featured in the movie Aladdin by Walt Disney.

The Oldest Carpet

The oldest carpet with piles in the world is the Pazyryk Carpet, it dates back to the 5th century BCE. It was discovered in 1949 during an excavation of the grave of a Scythian nobleman in the Pazyryk Valley of the Altai Mountains in Siberia. The beautiful and advanced technique used to produce the carpet demonstrate a long history and experience of weaving. What makes the design so special is that it shows the basic arrangement of what would eventually become the standard design for oriental carpets. This design is a field with repeating patterns that is framed by a main border and several secondary borders. This carpet can be seen at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.
