The Luri from Luristan are from the mountains of the far west of Iran, famous as a civilisation two millenia before Christ. Their rugs are always lossely woven with a long pile of high quality yarn. The dyes vary in quality and be quite harsh and prone to movement. As with all Persian tribal rugs, the rugs of the Luri use symbols and motifs from nature which are charmingly naieve and personal to the weaver. Luri rugs are tremendous value for money for those wanting an artisan floor covering.
