Back to Rug Guides
Iran is a hugely diverse country, it's climate can range from sub-zero in one area to lush valleys and mountains to arid dessert heat. Add in Oriental weaving countries and the number of cities, towns and villages where rugs are knotted is enormous. It would be impossible to describe them all so here we try to provide as much detail as possible on some of the most popular rug weaving regions. For a more general overview of the countries where weaving takes place visit our Rug Weaving Countries Guide.
Please check back regularly for updates, a map showing the location of each area can be found here:
