Shahsavan Pile carpets of the Shahsavan, a nomadic and semi-sedentary tribe of Turkish descent, are relatively much rarer than their flat woven products. Both count among good, genuine nomad pieces. runners as well as rugs up to 1.50 x 2.20 are mainly found. red and blue color tones predominate , ivory is used as a contrast colour as are small amounts of green, yellow and black. geometric ornamental patterns and small hexagonal medallions often alternating with stylised floral patterns are used as all-over patterns. The borders show stylised floral vines mostly in strongly contrasting colours to the field, cotton is primarily used for the warps and wefts. high quality, very lustrous, but rather coarse wool is used for piles and is cut high . Old and antique pieces are particularly rare.
