Antique Red Lori Persian Area Rug Wool Circa 1920
Lori rugs, woven by people living in Lorestan in the western part of Iran, are tribal traditional rugs. Lori weavers create traditional rugs in designs and styles similar to those created by the Kurds. Still living as they did hundreds of years ago, Lori rugs are woven with handmade tools following the time-honored traditions that have been handed down from generation to generation over centuries. Lori rugs are flat-woven, meaning that it is a textile without a pile. Flatweave is a technique of weaving where no knots are used. Instead, the warp strands are used as the foundation of the traditional rugs and the weft stands are used as both part of the foundation and in creating the patterns. The weft strands are woven through the warp strands.
