Nomadic rugs are woven without a pattern and mentally inspired by the surrounding nature, customs and traditions and symbols that are valuable to the nomads. These carpets are usually woven by nomadic women in nomadic tents. Nomadic women work in the production of dairy products, textiles, Kilims, Gabbehs and carpets, in addition to caring for families and children. They also weave the tents in which they live. Nomadic handmade carpets are highly regarded due to their connection with the ancient culture of weavers, their unique originality and designs, and their rarity.
Lori Nomadic Rugs
Lori nomadic rugs, despite their simplicity in texture and design, have attracted the attention of architects, decorators, collectors and those interested in handmade carpets. Lori nomadic rugs are often woven thickly and designs are often created using geometric shapes. The wrap and weft in Lori nomadic rugs are a mixture of sheep and goat wool wile knots are of Persian or Turkish style according to the weaving traditions of each tribe. They use natural colors to dye wool and reddish brown, crimson, indigo, beige and cream colors are mostly used in Lori carpet collection. Today, nomadic carpets, especially in Lorestan, are rarely woven, which has made these original Iranian handmade carpets rare and more valuable.
