Persian Kerman (Kirman) rugs and carpets

Despite the city of Kerman being located in one of the poorest provinces of Iran, it has been producing fine Persian rugs and carpets since the sixteenth century. Shah Abbas chose Kerman to establish one of his elite royal weaving houses probably because of its existing tradition of excellent Persian rug production. To the north of Kerman is the village of Ravar (Laver), this small village has a history of Persian rug weaving at least as long as Kerman, and Persian rugs and carpets from Laver are renowned for their soft colours, and in today's market old Kerman Laver's are highly desired amongst Persian rug and carpet dealers.
