Shiraz rugs fall into the village rug category. These weaves are noted for their small scale production; often in the family home. These rugs are then sold in the larger city bazaar before finding their way to the export market. As the name indicates, Shiraz rugs are knotted in deep reds with blues, ivory, and orange. The city of Shiraz is found in the south west region of Iran.
