These carpets are woven in Shiraz and the surrounding villages. Shiraz is home to the Qashqai tribe and the designs in Shiraz carpets are comparable to the Qashqai, Khamseh, Basseri, Afshar, Abadeh and Luri designs. Since the weavers are using fixed looms the rugs tend to be larger and often coarser than their tribal counterparts. Shiraz rugs are not often very finely knotted, with both Qashqai and Abadeh both having a finer knot. Shiraz utilizes the Persian (asymmetrical) knot. The design is geometric, sometimes featuring a pole medallion in the center. Shiraz carpets use red and brown colors and often use diamond-shaped lozenges as the primary motif. Borders often have smaller bands around a larger band with palm and pine leaf designs. Some pieces feature Cyrus' white horse and the Shiraz is the only rug to depict nightingales which come in the form of angular shaped birds that are said to symbolize contentment and happiness. Shiraz is a city in the southwest region of Iran, sited practically upon the old Persian Persepolis. Shiraz rugs are not usually made in a large factory, with the majority of them being woven by home weavers and taken into the main bazaar to be sold. read more
