Shahr-e Babak Persian Area Rugs

From the city of Shahr-e Babak or Shahrbabak in southern Persia, the incredible Kerman carpet is a soft treasure, and among the most beautiful designs woven. The traditional motif has the main border and central medallion in an intricately-detailed, ornate architectural or floral theme in the palest pastels with white-and-gold trim. This typically contrasts with an open field of a rich solid cranberry red, navy blue or other strong colors. Others patterns of Shahrebabak Rugs include the finer Lavar style with garden, tree-of-life, vase and all-over mille fleur designs, or the many pictorials which tell the story of a significant figure or event in history. Silk is almost never used
