Hand knotted carpets from the province of Fars,
located in southwestern Iran, near the Persian Gulf.
The city of Shiraz is important for the production of
carpets in the area and here they are sold many
knotted both by local people and from those nomads
of passage. Of nomads, especially the carpets are
Ghashghai of the most popular in terms of quality,
but also the values of carpets and Afshari are very
reputable. A detail that distinguishes the carpets of
this region is that often the ends of the long sides of
the carpet (Shirazi) are sewn with two colors.
The carpets are woven with high quality wool,
which ensures the creation of robust rugs and feature
a beautiful sheen. Even the warp is made of wool and,
in the case of the nomads, because they are
self-sufficient, they draw the wool from their own
livestock. They belong to the group of Fars Shiraz,
Lori carpets, Khamseh, Abadeh and Afshar,
besides the already mentioned Ghashghai
that tie the Gabbeh carpets.
