Lori Rugs

Lori rugs are tribal Persian rugs made by nomadic Lori people of the province of Lorrestan, in western Iran. These people are descendants of the Kurds, and their weaving styles and designs are incredibly similar to those of the Kurds. The rugs are more than often characterized by the bright and lively colors that they incorporate. The Lori carpets often have traditional floral patterns, but geometric ones are also seen. These rugs were not originally made to sell commercially. Rather, women who wove them were following an ancient custom that provides tribal families with hand-woven articles of practical value such as floor coverings, blankets, storage bags, saddle blankets, and financial security in case of future harsh times. A truly beautiful art piece on the floor, the Lori rug will keep a room warm and exotic looking for many years.
