Shiraz rugs originate from Shiraz, a city with a rich history that can be traced back to the neolithic times. Shiraz was a center of art and culture and the capital of Zand Persia. Today, Shiraz is one of the most important trading hubs in the province of Fars in southwest Iran. Shiraz rugs are produced in villages in and around this city. They are handwoven by tribal weavers on fixed looms that are made at their homes. These geometric rugs are the only type of Persian rugs that feature nightingales, a symbol of happiness and contentment.
Shiraz rugs come from a mixed origin. When they were first made, they drew on the culture and tradition of the weavers. The Qashqai tribe was one of the largest groups that settled in the city. Then there were groups formerly in the Khamseh Confederation, Afshar, Lori, Bakhtiari, as well as Baluch. As these tribes assimilated into the Persian society, they continued to make rugs with their own distinct weaving style, which resulted in a mixed variety of styles in the rugs that originated from Shiraz.
