Carpets made in LURI (LORI) have nomadic and geometric patterns. They are very durable and long-lasting, and natural dyes.

In the spring, the Luri live in black goat-hair tents. During the hot summer, they use leaves and branches for cover because they provide much cooler shelter. In the winter, they move into double ended houses known as zemga. These houses are half buried in the slope of a hill. They are built with boulders and 2/3 of the area is covered by a roof of branches.

Quality: Luri carpets are of excellent quality.

Size & Shapes: Luri rugs are usually mid-size (4 x 6 to 8 x 10 feet).
