Iran is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Proto-Elamite and Elamite kingdom in 3200 ? 2800 BCE. The Iranian Medes unified the country into the first of many empires in 625 BCE, after which it became the dominant cultural and political power in the region. Iran reached the pinnacle of its power during the Achaemenid Empire (First Persian Empire) founded by Cyrus the Great in 550 BCE, which at its greatest extent comprised major portions of the ancient world, stretching from Thrace and Macedon on the northeastern border of Greece in the west, to the Indus Valley in the east, making it the largest empire the world had yet seen. The empire collapsed in 330 BCE following the conquests of Alexander the Great. The area eventually regained influence under the Parthian Empire and rose to prominence once more after the establishment of the Sasanian dynasty (Neo-Persian empire) in 224 CE, under which Iran became one of the leading powers in the world along with the Byzantine Empire for the next four centuries.
During this period and under the rule of Shah Ismail and Shah Tahmaseb, such cities as Tabriz, Kashan, Hamedan and Heart had constituted the main centers of carpet-weaving and amongst the productions of this period one can point to the famous carpet of Ardebil (Victoria and Alber museum), and the hunting-ground carpet (kept in Millan museum). Following this period and during the region of Shah Abbas, concentered carpet-weaving workshops were established in Isfahan and Kashan and carpet-weaving was promoted to the level of a national art. Amongst the carpets of this period woven in Kashan by order of the court of Poland, one can point to the reputed Polynesian carpets. Following the Safavid period, assumably the only worth-mentioning point in the carpet-weaving history of Iran, has been the latest period of Qajars when such countries as U.S.A., England, and Switzerland had invested under the title of companies such as Zigler and O.C.M in the field of carpet weaving in such cities like Kerman and Arak which led to temporary prosperity of carpet in those regions.
