Kirman rugs also known as Kerman carpets in many countries refer to a specific type of Persian carpets. If you are a connoisseur of beautiful antique oriental rugs, you must surely be familiar with the artistic perfection achieved by Persians when it comes to creating ornamental pieces. The history of Kirman is very large and interesting which you should definitely know about, especially when you are interested in their rugs. The name comes from a city that was famous for manufacturing such pieces besides other accessories.The carpets of Kerman were appreciated by none other than the legendary traveler Marco Polo, who described them as a marvel. Even today, one could say the same about the Kerman carpets. Kerman is a city in Southeast Iran with 2 million people. For over hundreds of years, the city of Kerman has been one of the biggest producers of high quality Persian carpets. The carpets and rugs made in Kerman are distinguished by predominantly floral medallions. In the older Kerman carpets, the cotton foundations are more depressed, with a sinuous second weft and rigid first and third wefts. The best Kerman rugs are made in the town of Laver which is 120 miles from Kerman. The enterprising Atiyeh family owned several hundred looms in Laver and was the biggest manufacturers of Kerman rugs and carpets. But the Islamic Revolution in Iran, which began in 1979, demolished all their good work, and they were subsequently forced to shift production to China.
While Persian carpets are always known throughout history for their perfection and artistic skills, Kirman rugs are always considered to be the best of their creation.
