Large Size Red-Burgundy Kerman Persian Oriental Area Rug 9x12 Wool - $ 1239.28 From the city of that name in southern Persia, the incredible Kerman carpet is a soft treasure, and among the most beautiful designs woven. The traditional motif has the main border and central medallion in an intricately-detailed, ornate architectural or floral theme in the palest pastels with white-and-gold trim. This typically contrasts with an open field of a rich solid cranberry red, navy blue or other strong colors. Others patterns include the finer Lavar style with garden, tree-of-life, vase and all-over mille fleur designs, or the many pictorials which tell the story of a significant figure or event in history. Silk is almost never used.
