    DESCRIPTION:
    This rug is hand-knotted by villagers, who were former nomads in the south of Persia. The carpet often has a geometrical pattern with red , cream and blue colours. The Afshar rug is thought to be the best examples of nomadic art among carpets, with their primitive and majestic beauty.
    Around the city of in the southeast of Iran/Persia reside the semi nomads from the Afshar tribe. For hundreds of years these nomads lived in the northwest of Iran/Persia, but a part of the tribe were compulsorily transferred to today's area, where carpet manufacturing became an important branch of business.
     The most common pattern contains a large center piece with one or more squared medallions, this symbolizes a hide stretched for preparation. Today, medallions also occur and are typical of the Afshar carpets as they are also relatively wide in relation to its length. These rugs are very durable and with their earthy colors are ideal for any decor. Afshar rugs are also known under the name Sirjan.
    RUGS WOVEN BY NOMADS: Nomads move continuously and do not stay permanently in one geographic region.They weave handmade carpets on collapsible looms. Due to that fact there may be slight variations in weaving and the different shades of wool with sometimes uneven in shape giving it a real feeling of a genuine nomadic handicraft. The weaving is made from memory and it depends on each artisans momentary inspiration. The workmanship is of high quality from hand spun wool to preparing the natural dyes from organic plants and roots to dye the wool in different colors in preparation for weaving. Persian Handmade rugs have a timeless appeal which transcends the whims of fashion, and are one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly flooring options available. Each unique design represents the artistic vision and fine craftsmanship by the hand of the weaver.
