"The loom was province for our company since we are a major carpet producer in Iran. the production site for one of the world's largest handmade wool rugs This loom, in terms of dimensions and its artistic composition, with adjustable length and 50 meters width is unique in Iran. It consists of two movable beams to which warps are attached, the complete work is rolled on to lower beam and makes it ideal for weaving very long rugs, also in some cases rugs are woven in series which could be perfect option for large orders of similar rugs with the same size and design."
