Around the city of Kirman in the southeast of Iran reside the semi nomads from the Afshar tribe. For hundreds of years these nomads lived in the northwest of Iran, but a part of the tribe were compulsorily transferred to today’s area, where carpet manufacturing became an important branch of business.
The carpets are often in simple geometric designs and have red and blue colour tones. Afshar carpets are also known on the market under the name of Sirjan which is town in this region.
