Kerman is a city in southeast Iran. Persian Kerman carpets (Kirman) from the 17th century include the famous Kerman 'Vase' carpets and this educational photo-gallery includes several fragments of these carpets. More recent antique weavings include medaillon designs, pictorial carpets and other designs.
The educational rug photo-gallery with Kerman carpets is a part of one of the first published sections of Jozan Magazine. Recently we have re-organized the gallery and included new images and rug types.
