Loribaft Loom

Loribaft Loom


The Loribaft Loom differs from a Persian Loribaft in two aspects: First, they are handmade in Bhadohi, India and second, a different type of weaving loom is used. These weaving looms require less effort for the weavers, which results in a lower price of the carpets. Craftsmanship and used materials are high-grade, identifiable inter alia by the soft pile these carpets have.

The difference between a Persian Loribaft and a Loribaft Loom is that the origins of these carpets differ as well as the way they are produced. While the Persian Loribaft are handknotted by nomad tribes in southwest Iran, the Loribaft Loom are handmade in the city of Bhadohi in India. In Bhadohi, another type of weaving loom is used which enables to produce carpets with a classical or modern Gabbeh-design but with less effort. Thus, the Loribaft Looms cost less. The wool used is high grade, which results in very soft and comfortable, yet robust carpets. One restraint of these indian weaving looms is that they do not enable complicated patterns and design to be made. Therefore, the Loribaft Looms come either with plain geometrical patterns or completely without patterns.
