More about the provenance Loribaft | Iran

The "Lori" are an Indo-Iranian nomadic people from the mountain region of South West Persia. They are related to the tribe of the Bakhtiari. "Loribaft" rugs are a modern further development of the very popular Gabbeh provenance of rugs. Loribaft are a finer production of Gabbeh rugs both in terms of weaving as well as the designs (also going towards more modern design trends). There are no Lori silk rugs, they are merely made of wool pile and mostly on cotton foundation, older pieces can be found to be made on wool foundation. The Turkish knot is used in the weaving.

This Oriental rug has been treated with a "Noble Finish" wash. This wash includes not only the actual cleaning of the carpet but also its processing (ennobling) which represents an increase in the Oriental carpet's value. By this special technique a soft and silky feel and shine are added to the carpet. This washing technique requires experience and skill since otherwise carpets could easily be damaged by it. In this case the washing was implemented perfectly.
