Persian Isfahan Rugs
Isfahan, also referred to as Esfahan or Isphahan is a weaving city situated in central west Iran. Under the rule of Shah Abbas, Isfahan was Persia’s capital city, until the Afghan invasion in the early seventeen hundreds. The main city then changed hands a couple of times until Tehran became the capital in the late seventeen hundreds, and remains so today. Isfahan rugs are well known for extremely fine workmanship, although did suffer from inferior dyes in the first quarter of the twentieth century. After the Second World War the excellent craftsmanship and designs continued and the quality of the dyes also improved. Intricate floral and pictorial designs are very common, often woven using silk alone, or in combined with wool. The density of knots can reach up to 750 per square inch.
