Kashan of Iran
Zobeida, the favourite wife of the famous Caliph Haroun-al-Rasheed, established the town of Kashan, which is situated between Tehran and Isfahan. The town of Kashan is the third in the long line of towns, which follow each other at distances of from 75 to 150 miles along the western fringe of the Great Desert on the highway to India.
Kashan, in spite of its disabilities, possesses a long and honourable record; for its inhabitants, unable to gain a livelihood from the inhospitable land, turned their hands to industry and made their town the principal centre in Persia for the production of fine textiles in cotton, wool and silk as well as fine carpets, they create a very famous essence, named rose-water which is sought after all the world.
The Kashan district is possibly one of the best producers of Persian Carpets. These carpets have taken the name of the region, and are simply referred to as the “Kashan”. Due to the very high quality of the wool, the very fine weaving and the beautiful colours and designs, Kashan have become to be classified among the finest Persian Carpets.
The warp and weft are made of cotton or silk. The designs vary from medallions with tendrils to vases and from all over patterns to very fine floral designs.
However, the most common designs are those with central medallions.
This one is woven with very good quality wool and is very hard wearing as well as being decorative and beautiful. These rugs are known as the best in the industry for design and weaving technique.
