(Posted on 10/11/15)

Luri (Lori)Tribesmen found throughout Persia mainly in the west of the country and Fars province in the south who produce superb nomadic pile rugs.  In quality work is comparable with that of the Kurds, but Luri designs are usually based on a distinctive 'hooked' medallion.  Most Luri rugs are marketed under the name of the specific village or tribe, but items that cannot be specifically attributed are sometimes referred to simply as Luri rugs.
