Shiraz Carpet

Shiraz carpets are woven in two groups:
Carpets that are woven with symmetrical designs in cities like Abadeh. These hand-made carpets are finely woven with a density of 35 to 45 knots per 7 cm. The knot type of Abadeh carpets is asymmetrical and they are woven with the 2-weft technique.

Gabbeh is another production of nomads, which is woven with simple mental designs and long piles. A greater number of wefts are used in the gabbeh, which makes it softer.
