A rug produced by the Basseri tribe
Designs tend to come from settled tribal weavers so they mimic Qashqai, Khamseh (Basseri and Khamseh Arabs), Afshar, Abadeh and Luri designs.[citation needed] Since the weavers are using fixed looms the rugs tend to be larger and often coarser than their tribal counterparts.[citation needed] Shiraz rugs are not often very finely knotted, with both Qashqai and Abadeh both having a finer knot. Shiraz utilizes the Persian (asymmetrical) knot.[citation needed]
Some pieces feature Cyrus' white horse. The Shiraz carpet is the only rug to depict nightingales, which are shown as angular-shaped birds. These birds are said to symbolise contentment and happiness.[1]
The rugs of the Basseri tribe, one of the Persian tribes of the Fars province, are famous for their colorful designs. Orange is the specific color of Basseri rugs.[2]
