    Tribal carpets

    Iranian tribal carpets are generally woven by Lor nomads who live in an area called Lorestan in western Iran. These carpets are woven in nomadic tents and generally without the use of patterns and maps. Nomads usually produce most of the items they need including carpets. The designs of these handmade carpets are composed of the surrounding nature, customs, and symbols that are valuable to the nomads. Lorestan nomadic handmade carpets have been very popular among those interested in original oriental carpets due to the ancient culture of weavers, originality and unique designs.

    Lori Tribal Rugs

    Lori tribal rugs have very simple designs with geometric motifs. These carpets are generally thicker and smaller than other Persian carpets. The nomads believe that their hand-woven patterns bring blessings and goodness. Today, due to modernity, the number of nomads in Iran has decreased and nomadic carpets, especially in Lorestan, are rarely woven. This has made these oriental handmade rugs more rare and valuable.
