Persian Workshop Rugs
The city of Kerman, situated in south Iran has been responsible for producing workshop carpets since the sixteenth century. During the tough times of the nineteenth century, Kerman like many other Persian cities, turned their hands to producing shawls. This was a very lucrative market which helped to cover the shortfall in demand for carpets and rugs during this time. The shawl production industry was dominated by Kashmir, but they eventually went out of fashion, especially in the west. This coincided with an increase in the demand for carpets. The already present looms and skilled weavers in Kerman put them at an advantage. As a result Kerman weavers were able to benefit almost immediately to the rise in demand.
