Down in the southeast of Iran, near an oasis in the Dasht-e-Lut desert, lies the city of Kerman with a population of around 350,000. Over 1,000 km away from Tehran, it was founded in the 4th century and was a key meeting point for those travelling along the trade routes between Iran and India. The city of Kerman still breathes a pleasant atmosphere today thanks to its mosques, bazaar districts and tea houses. Carpet knotting has long been an important activity and Kerman rugs are easy to recognise. The main colour is often red and the motifs are dominated by a central medallion with a large flowery border. The carpets knotted before World War I usually have different motifs: trees, animals and figurative motifs. Both the materials and the result were usually of good quality.
