Virtually every Iranian tribe or ethnic group is represented in Veramin, a vast expanse of wilderness south of Tehran. Diverse weavings necessarily are a hallmark of this area. The Shahsavan of Veramin are represented by two kilims, the first with a striped composition and diamond-shaped stars, and the second with a comb-like pattern. The eye-dazzling design and vivid, varied colors of this rug is characteristic of Veramin.
