A beautiful example of a classic rug from Shiraz featuring warm earthy red tones, geometric medallions set within a gorgeous floral motif border.
Shiraz is a city located in the Fars region within the ancient Persepolis ruins. The city is famed for its gardens, tombs of the poets and its relaxed culture, atmosphere and literary heritage. Designs typically come from settled tribal weavers who use fixed looms and produce colourful designs which are almost always geometrical in style. You can expect to see strong reds and browns with patterns incorporating small medallions or geometric figures scattered across the rugs. Rugs from Shiraz are extremely hard wearing and compliment wooden floors, today they are incredibly popular because of their exceptional value for money.
