Antique Persian Kirman Botanic Navy Blue Background Rug (Size Adjusted) BB0631 12'8" × 25'5" $60,000

Colors can range from ivory, blue and magenta to a more golden and saffron cast. As unique as their designer, no two Kerman beautiful rugs are precisely alike. Because of the tremendous demand for Kirman rugs, and because of the complex demographics of those generating the demand, a surprising variety of styles and designs were produced. While some Kirman rugs were woven explicitly for moneyed buyers from the West, there were also local consumers which only added to the diversity of the Kirman Persian rugs. This diversity is seen in the range of motifs which can range from well-known and original Persian motifs to western motifs; striped and repetitive motifs, vase, Toranj (Citron), symmetric, garden, animal shapes, and pictorial antique oriental rugs.
