The reputation of the carpets from Kashan is unmatched by a few other carpet origins. It is synonymous with the highest quality and traditional production of the finest craftsmanship. One of the most renowned Persian carpets, the Ardebil rug in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, is said to have been crafted in this city located between Isfahan and Tehran. In the Persian Empire, Kashan was considered a major trading hub on the historic Silk Road. However, its importance has declined over time.
Kashan carpets are usually made from high-quality wool, with the use of silk being rare. They are made using Persian knots by master weavers and often feature traditional floral designs. Although the production of these carpets faced a decline in the past, it has since regained its former strength. This is why Kashan carpets are highly sought after and appreciated by those in the industry. The warp and weft are typically made of cotton and the pile of high-quality sheep's wool, resulting in densely knotted carpets with Persian knots that will last for years to come. There is a wide range of knotted patterns, including medallions, floral designs, and allover patterns. The use of blue, red, and beige shades in coloring these carpets is traditional.
However, one must exercise caution when purchasing Kashan carpets, as there have been instances of them being sold as originating from this city when they are actually from Indian production and of significantly lower quality. This can be easily determined through direct comparison.
The Pile material is 100% natural fine wool and the foundation is made of natural cotton.
