Medallion motifs of Persian rugs are driven from pattern of gardens and their streams. In this motifs, a large central floral medallion is surrounded by smaller floral layouts and shows off at the center of the rug just like a medal.
Medallion pattern is one of the most repeated schemes across all types of Persian rugs. And each one has its own unique beauty. It’s not wrong to say that no two rugs have the same motifs even if they have basically the same design.
