Lors are of few tribal groups, which have lived in their native lands since three thousand years and are recognized as pure Iranian people like Kurd.

We have limited information about their history but they have a very long precedence in handicrafts specially kilim weaving. Many Qashqai kilims have been Lor in fact.

Lors have not adopted all their designs from Qashqai’s hand made but Qashqais were under influence of Lors so that most of pile fully carpets and hand woven are assumed as Lors art.

Their designs are quite different than other Turkish (and other kilims) designs. Their textiles are much coarser and spun rather loose, but seem thicker, while touching. Specifications are:

Ground Design: Complicated designs, medallions
Margins: Simple and traditional
Size and Feature: Rectangular
Materials: Coarse, brown wool warps, wool weft
Texture: Slit weaving
Color: Limited coloring and dark
Fringes: Uniform
Selvage: Uniform, sometimes reinforced by supplementary wefts

These kilims are similar to Qashqai’s hand-woven, but simpler with less variety in color.
