Tribal Persian rugs made by nomadic Kurdish people of western Iran,
Koliai carpets are often characterized by bright and lively colors.
These rugs were not originally made to sell commercially. Rather, women who
wove them were following an ancient custom that provides
tribal families with hand-woven articles of practical value such as
floor coverings, blankets, storage bags, saddle blankets, and
financial security in case of future harsh times. Truly beautiful and vibrant,
a Koliai rug will keep a room looking lovely for many, many years.
