Which city is the best carpet in Iran? Due to the high price and economic value of hand-woven carpets, many people use machine-made carpets as an alternative. Kashan has been known as the largest and most important exporter and producer of machine-made carpets for several years. It can almost be said that all carpet dealers are familiar with Kashan machine-made carpets and are busy exporting them to other countries. But in which city is the best hand-woven carpet in Iran woven?

For several years, the city of Tabriz has been operating as a hub for producing hand-woven carpets, and the products of its master weavers, such as hand-woven carpets, hand-woven carpet panels, hand-woven rugs and carpets, are among the most popular and best-selling products of the carpet industry. With these interpretations, the title of Iran’s best carpet cannot be generalized to a specific city.

Designs and its correct implementation on the carpet (in terms of symmetry and lines)

Knots and type of carpet texture
Roots, stalks and threads of the carpet
