Isfahan Rugs

Esfahan Pictorial

From the city and province of Isfahan come some of the most beautiful Persian carpets. Isfahan carpets show fine detail, whether the pile is made of wool or silk, and also the foundation is often made of pure silk. The design of Isfahan rugs is very symmetrical, and frequently a single medallion is surrounded with floral vines. Tree-of-life schemes are also a common pattern. The Isfahan weavers use Persian knots. Popular colours are blue, rose, indigo, and ivory for the background. Especially antique Isfahan can also show bright red tones.
