Gholtogh carpets are nomadic carpets knotted by the Gholtogh tribe in the northeastern region of Iran, in a small village bearing the same name - Gholtogh.
The designs often feature geometric patterns, intricate medallions and floral motifs. The inspiration is fetched from the natural surroundings of the region and each carpet is a unique piece of art, reflecting the individual style and creativity of the weaver who made it.
One of the defining features of Gholtogh carpets is the use of the asymmetrical knotting technique, which creates a more durable and tightly woven carpet. If properly cared for, these carpets can last for generations.
The colours used are typically bold and bright, with shades of red, blue, green, and yellow being the most commonly used.
Gholtogh carpets add warmth, beauty, and elegance to any space in which they are placed.
