Persian Shiraz Rugs are some of the most iconic tribal Persian Rugs you can find and are made in and around Shiraz city in southern Iran. They were woven by nomadic peoples and the full patternation of this rug is an excellent example of their 19th-century aesthetic. The rug has also been woven with excellent quality wool by weavers whose technique dates back thousands of years, making this piece extremely durable. In very good overall condition, the rug has some areas of even wear and still maintains a lot of its pile.
