Antique Persian Kerman Lavar rug in beige and red shades. This rug has very busy floral design with all kind of foliage and flowers covering it. In the center there is large ornament in the shape of flower. Beige, crimson and olive colors are dominating on this carpet. Beautiful piece to decorate your home.

The design pattern of Kerman carpets are also a distinct feature. Vase carpets, a type of Kerman rug distinctive of the 16th and 17th centuries, are characterized by an allover pattern of stylized flowers and oversized palmettes with vases placed throughout the field.

Another rare and distinct variation of Kerman carpets is the Lavar or Ravar Kerman. Although Lavar is the improper name, some are still labeled as such. These carpets were produced in Ravar village next to Kerman city in the northern region, and are known particularly for their fine weave and elegant, classically derived design of allover and central medallion formats.

Antique Persian Kerman Rug Whether Ravar Kerman or Kerman, these antique rugs can boast fine woven reproductions of European paintings, as well as curvilinear, dense allover floral patterns. Floral patterns woven into Kerman carpets are derivative of shawls for which Kerman was also the center of producing in the early to mid- 19th century. Most Ravar or Lavar Kerman carpets include a signature, either that of the weaver or to whom the carpet was woven for. It is important to note, however, that there is no one design or style of Kerman rug that is vastly more popular than any other. Because of the tremendous demand for rugs produced in Kerman, and because of the complex demographics of those generating the demand, a surprising variety of styles and designs were produced. While some Kerman rugs were woven explicitly for monied buyers from the West, there were of course local consumers as well. This rug was exported from Iran before 1st January 2015
