Kashan

Kashan produces carpets in both wool and silk. The former have cotton warps and blue cotton wefts. Several qualities are produced, but most Kashan carpets are quite finely knotted. All-over and medallion designs are produced; the shape of the Kashan medallion is distinctive; it is formed of alternating curved lines and right angles. The commonest scheme is a red field with a blue medallion, with subsidiary details in other colours. The borders of Kashan carpets are also distinctive. The main border is generally flanked by guard-stripes with geometrical designs, normally tiny blue and red triangles. Kashan carpets are made in all sizes.
