About the piece

Isfahan, once the capital city of Shah Abbas in 1595, is considered to be one of the most magical cities in Iran. Its magnificent mosques and architecture with floral and geometric designs inspired most Isfahan carpets. Isfahan carpets are made from fine wool and silk, generally woven onto silk warps where weft threads are considered to be among the finest and most durable Persian rugs. The best-known manufactures are Seirafian, Haghighi and Shoreshi. Pure silk rugs in Isfahan are rarely made, and the manufacturer called Shoreshi has mastered the skill of making a limited quantity of genuine silk rugs by using vegetable dyes and high-quality silk. This is an earlier example woven on cotton , full pile.
