Quick Overview

From the town of Ravar just north east of Kirman come some of the finest examples of Kirmans, which are known as Kirman Lavar carpets.


The main field filled with floral emblems entwined with vines and leaves. All is enclosed in multiple borders, the larger border reproducing the elements found in the field. Kirman is the capital of the province in south Persia of the same name, situated 2000 meters above sea level. As elsewhere in Persia carpet weaving declined during the 18th century and was revived during the second half of the 19th century, since when Kirman carpets have enjoyed a considerable reputation.
