Loribaft carpets are a particular valuable form of Gabbeh carpets. They possess a very fine and close knotting, which is why the production of Loribaft carpets takes fives to six times longer than that of ordinary good Gabbehs.
Due to the longer manufacturing time, less carpets are produced. Their rareness results in a higher exlclusivity. This manufacturing method makes the Loribaft carpets more robust and resistant. Characteristic for nomads residing in the southern Iranian province of Fars is the traditional pattern of the Loribaft carpets. The majority of the carpets are hand-knotted by nomadic Ghashghai tribes in the surrounding area of Shiraz. Only hand spun lamb's wool (warp and woof) and natural dyed colors, mostly in red and beige tones, are used. Vibrant colors and sharp contrats are the reasons, why these traditional persian carpets have found their way in modern interiors today.
