Oriental village rugs:

Loori, Hosseinabad, Malyer, bidjar, senneh…


A reflection of local craftsmanship, it was from the second half of the 19th century that many rug designs and patterns were developed, often drawing inspiration from earlier creations.


These creations bear witness to ancestral know-how passed down from generation to generation.

Loori :

Located to the west and further south in Fars, the Lur people consist of a semi-nomadic population. The most common sizes of rugs range from dozar (about 2 m²) to kellé (1.50 x 3.50m approximately). Geometric designs can be reminiscent of Caucasian rugs. They are warm and comfortable rugs that fit into both contemporary and traditional interiors, with stylish and timeless graphics. The charm of these rugs is above all due to their simple or even naïve patterns, the quality of the wools and their astonishing colors.
