KASHAN CARPETS

 

The Kashan rugs surfaced from one of the oldest cities, Kashan, Iran, that shares its namesake. The origin of the Kashan dates back to the 17th century though some experts believe that some of the Kashan’s designs draw back to the 16th century.

 

 

A Kashan rug’s foundations are usually cotton, though their older pieces are made from pure silk. The body frame is crafted with wool that sometimes has silk mixed within. The finished texture of Kashan rugs is normally tight, yet soft to the touch. Normally, a Kashan rug would utilize vegetable dyes to provide this unique texture, but newer incarnations utilize chemical dyes that don’t necessarily give it the same allure.
