Another rare and distinct variation of Kerman carpets is the Lavar or Ravar Kerman. Although Lavar is not the correct name, some are still labeled as such. These carpets were produced in Ravar village next to Kerman city in the northern region, and are known particularly for their fine weave and elegant, classically derived design of all-over and central medallion format.
Most of Ravar rugs created in early to mid-19th century are considered as antique rugs. Some of Ravar rugs either named or signed by the weaver. There is a tremendous demand for Ravar antique rugs regardless of the patterns and designs and a lot of antique Ravar Kerman rugs are selling through the auction houses around the world.
