In 1499, a new dynasty arose in Persia. Shah Ismail I, its founder, and his successors, Shah Tahmasp I and Shah Abbas I, became patrons of the Persian Safavid art.

During the Safavids period, especially during the rule of Shah Abbas the great, who reigned 1587-1629, art, architecture and handicraft products, carpets, ceramics, enamelware and metalware were developed and Isfahan became the new magnificent capital of the country. Within a short time carpet weaving rose from a localised Persian industry to a fine art sought after by the kings of Europe.
