miniatures of Pirot rugs
is believed that the rug weaving technique with the
South Slavic peoples had been known much before the
arrival of the Turks to these parts. However, with their
arrival they had also brought along more advanced technique
and abundant ornamental motives and thus upgraded the
importance of rug weaving, especially in Pirot region.
The beauty and quality of Pirot rug is owed to the finest
wool from Stara planina mountain, with its thin and
long threads, and naturally derived colors as well as
industrious weavers which for countless times varied
certain patterns and artistically combined the colors.
Thus Pirot rugs reflect the characteristic features
of the region they come from.
The quality of wool and steadfastness of colors make
Pirot rug precious and unique and their long-life quality
and beauty give a special touch and appeal to every
and each area.
