Yazd handwoven carpet and features

The country of Iran is the birthplace of hand-woven carpets all over the world. Yazd is one of the cities that has presented a variety of high-quality hand-woven carpets. In the past, this carpet was woven with a density of 30 knots per 7 cm, but today it reaches up to 50 knots. Due to the location of Yazd in the desert region of Iran, carpets in this area are woven with low thickness and warm colors. Due to its proximity to Kerman, Yazd carpet designs are very similar to Kerman carpet designs.
