Kirman has long been a town dedicated to carpet weaving in the south east of Persia. Kirman carpets are always high quality, woven on a cotton foundation, designs consist of central medallions with floral motifs. From the 17th century Kerman or Kirman has been a city notorious for fine eleagnt weaving and the famous vase carpets of the Safavid period (1501-1722) are regarded as the most valuable and exquisite in weaving history. Early examples from the 17th century have set records for sales at auctions.
