Shahsavan tribes occupy the Sava area of Northwestern Iran. They produce an exquisite rug that is often prized as art around the world. There are several groups of Shahsavan nomads scattered throughout Northwestern Iran. These rugs are often referred to as Saveh. The patterns are usually simple and geometric. The color scheme consists of soft earth tones, such as rust and beige. Although made in the most harsh and primitive conditions with no aid of modern technology whatsoever, Shahsavan rugs never cease to amaze spectators. They have outstanding quality and excellent symmetry. A rug of this type is an authentic and unique Persian treasure that will make any floor absolutely beautiful and pleasant to walk on.
