Cottage and tribal rugs are generally restricted in size due to the fact that the looms are either in the home, or carried around by the tribe. So a usual loom would be no wider than eight feet. The rugs can be woven to any length, but the width is restricted to the size of the loom. So, as a result, Persian homes were usually decorated with many rugs of smaller dimensions. This did not catch on in the west, and as rugs became a more popular floor covering the demand for larger room-sized pieces grew. A wider palette of colours was also becoming more popular due to the rugs requirement to suit the interior colour schemes. Merchants in Persia invested in the equipment required to cater for this demand in the west for larger rugs with a wider choice of colours. This was known as the revival period and began around 1875.
