Hand woven in Iran
These are the largest nomadic tribes in central Iran of Turkic origin that still migrate some 800 km twice a year with their families, flocks, tents and other belonging.
Weaving carpets have always been part of their daily life.
They have no set or fixed designs drawn on papers and it is known that they are some of the most interesting and artistic people in terms of the variety of designs which they get inspired by their surrounding.
Mostly use wool in warp, weft and pile that they sheer themselves and often dye the wool locally which results to various and irregular shades of one colour on the pile of the rug which is called abrash.
