These carpets have been crafted in the Isfahan Province, in central Iran since the 16th century, although the greater designs were produced later on in the 17th century. During this time, the rulers of the Safavid era would retreat to Kashan for their holidays and while there, they would immerse themselves in the splendour of the city.

A closer inspection, by a more disconcerting eye, will reveal the truth about the rugs true design, as the Kashan carpet will often have traces of silk woven into the fabrics. The foundation of a lesser quality carpet is made often made of cotton, but can also have some silk incorporated into it. The wool used is delicately soft and the ends are tightly knotted, with the knot count being higher
per square inch in the more expensive carpets. Most Kashan’s have a similar design, with a floral motif and eye-catching medallion in the centre of the rug. Designs change ever so slightly depending on the area in which the carpet has been made. This is how dealers and decorators can trace the origins of each rug.
