This antique shiraz rug is knotted in the province of Fars in southwest of Iran, with the city of Shiraz as the capital province. The rug was originally knotted by nomads that lived in the area, but nowadays most of them are resident in smaller villages in the province. The pattern in the rug is typical for nomads with motifs of simple geometric figures and often with one or more diamond medallion in the center. The bottom colour is often red and the motifs in different blue nuances. There are also flowers and bird motifs in some Shiraz rugs. These rugs are very durable with thick pile of wool.


    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.
