Kerman is one of the oldest cities of Iran/ Persia known for their fine, lustrous wool, coloured soft red, green, blue, yellow and ivory.
Marco Polo praised the carpets of Kerman as a marvel to see in 1270. His description is still apt today. Kerman is the capital city of a province with the same name and has been a major source of high grade Persian carpets for the last century. Today Kerman produces highly distinctive carpets and rugs primarily in highly floral medallions or all over designs. In the older carpets the all cotton foundations have a depressed foundation with the first and third wefts rigid and the second sinuous. Kerman Shah or Laver Kerman became known for the best Kerman rugs.
Kerman Carpets are rich with powerful central medallions, the motifs of which are also used in the borders and in the corners. On the larger Kerman carpets, there are animal designs or all-over patterns, the smaller ones are often decorated with vase patterns or pictorial subjects.
This specific Kerman rug has fields of beige and maroon encompassing different shades, this is contrasted with the decorative little flowers of the most serene shades of blue, intertwined with small vine petals of light and dark green colours. The centre medallion of this rug is in a diamond shape rather than a circular one, with light blue floral motifs on each side, building its way to a golden deign in the centre of the diamond which one can make out as a cross.
