Description of Design and History:Kerman Lavar or Raver Rugs and antique Kerman Ravar Carpets refer to the same thing €œ the prestigious carpet-weaving center known as Ravar/ Lavar. Ravar or Lavar is a small village located 80 miles north of Kerman. The rugs produced in Raver/ Lavar are often included in the general category of Kerman rugs, yet the reputation of this small town surpasses many larger cities. The village of Ravar/ Lavar has a long-standing reputation for producing some of the finest rugs in the Kerman regionLavar is a trade term and linguistic permutation that is used in the west to describe rugs produced in the village of Ravar. Over the years, other regional towns adapted Ravar „¢s elegant floral style and impeccable construction techniques. Kerman Lavar rugs are occasionally produced in the nearby city of Rafsanjan and workshops, such as Atiyeh, that specialized in producing later adaptations of Persian Lavar Kerman rugs.According to explanations developed by historians, Ravar/ Lavar rose to prominence in the 1800 „¢s when artisan craftspeople fled the city of Kerman, which was under attack. In the village of Ravar/ Lavar, these carpet weavers developed their own style that incorporated voluminous floral patterns woven in an impressive array of colors. Kerman Lavar rugs also include detailed pictorials rendered in a style similar to the pictorial scenes produced in Qum and Isfahan. Many early Kerman Lavar rugs feature kaleidoscopic floral patterns and curvilinear vinescrolls decorated with a variety of vibrant and subdued colors. In the 20th century, regional designs shifted to reflect a European composition, including saturated colors and a rich monochromatic field. Lavar Kerman rugs feature supremely detailed patterns, innovative colors and discontinuous borders with elements that invade neighboring areas. The impeccable craftsmanship, tightly placed knots and exceptionally diverse range of colors set Kerman Lavar rugs apart from those created in Persia „¢s other great carpet-producing cities.All natural dyes are paramount for the carpet to have more than just decorative value. Beyond that, various dyers had varying levels of skill and invested different lengths of time in dyeing the yarns. The Å“quality of color €œits radiance and level of nuance within each color €œis centrally important. Certain rare colors such as Tyrian purple, saffron yellow, cochineal rose and greens add to the carpet „¢s value
