Atiyeh International is back in Kerman Iran


Atiyeh International has reestablished operations in Kerman and has begun production of their Kerman carpet line again. JBOC

"Upon the lifting of the 1987- 2000 US embargo on Iranian rugs, this was one of the first patterns to be restored to the Atiyeh line of new Persian Kermans. Designed by Georges Sirmadjieff during his tenure as manager and designer for the Atiyeh's in the 1930s, it is a hallmark known throughout the Republic. The Moorish motifs and Persian curvilinear details add a touch of the exotic to the traditional American home.
Woven on the same looms in Kerman Province, these rugs are still made using ancient techniques of hand-dyeing with vegetal roots, berries, leaves and all things natural to capture the essence of the Atiyeh Kerman. "
