The city of Kirman is located in the southeastern part of Iran.As with many other weaving centers in Persia, production was reintroduced to Kirman in the late 19th Century, with emphasis on making carpets and rugs of curvilinear design. In this barren desert no flowers will grow, and so the weavers covered their carpets with beautiful and intricate floral patterns in a wide variety of designs. The borders were often decorated with patterns similar to those used in the main body of the carpet. Kirman carpets were woven on a double wefted cotton foundation with a Persian knot.
