On the fringe of the central desert in Persia, Kashan has a well-deserved reputation for producing extremely fine quality traditional rugs.

During Safavid times Kashan was renown  as one of the finest weaving centers of the world.  The city is located at the very heart of the central Persian carpet-making region and has given rise to some of the most famous of all carpets.  The great Ardebil Carpets were most certainly woven there in the sixteenth century.

This example is evocative of the fine rugs produced in Kashan in the 19th and early 20th century that form the basis for many westerner’s notion of what a Persian rug should look like.
