View Our Selection of Antique Persian Luri or Lori Rugs
Antique Persian Lori Rugs Antique Persian Lori rugs and carpets (which are also spelled as Luri) represent a unique and important development in the world of antique rugs and carpets. The Lori rugs were woven by the Lurs of the Zagros Mountains in western Persia (which is the modern day country of Iran), these carpets are among the most impressive of all tribal Persian weaving.
Utilizing a primarily geometric repertory along with highly stylized animal forms arranged as allover patterns, Luri rugs rely extensively on the effects of rich color – above all reds, blues, greens, and yellows. These vibrant hues and shades heighten the dynamic vitality of these unique tribal compositions. These weaving largely consist of bags and wrappings – but Luri weavers made fairly large carpets and scatter size rugs as well.
