Hailing from a long line of refined antiques, the Kashan rug is one of the most prominent and recognizable Persian rugs. The reputation of the Kashan rug is one of the high standards, exquisite craftsmanship, and historical significance in the evolution of carpet weaving. Located in the area between current day Isfahan and Tehran, the Kashan of the Persian Empire was designated a thriving trading locale along the Silk Road leaving a legacy that has spanned centuries. Kashan rugs are hand-knotted from premium sheep’s wool in a dense knotting style which is appreciated both for its endurance and beauty. The longevity of the craftsmanship is noted by connoisseurs and collectors alike.
Often exhibiting rich scarlets, blues and neutral tones, the traditional Kashan patterns of floral ornaments and medallions are woven into the design. This elegant antique rug explores the central medallion motif as the main feature of the rug. The navy backdrop with rust and light blue details bring a modern feel to an ancient tradition.
