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.
