Hand Knotted Royal Garden of Kashan 9ft X 12ft Carpet
Many of the archetypal Persian carpet designs originate in Kashan. The source of the notable garden motif, the “Royal Garden” of Kashan, still has flowing spring water and has been well preserved since the 16th century. This royal garden was built by the Shah Abbas, the principal monarch of the Safavid Dynasty. The basic inspiration and model for most city carpets is the Garden of Paradise.
About Kashan Carpets:
Kashan rugs are high in quality and make with incorporations of silk and wool. The majority of Kashan's typically have a central medallion and Persian floral motifs forming the pattern.
They have been crafted since the 17th century during the Safavid dynasty, with many scholars suggesting that many designs date back to the early 16th century. Kashan rugs are recognised as amongst the most magnificent and celebrated of all Perisian rugs. The city is home to the oldest gardens of Iran- the Fin Garden, and this garden also acts as a muse for many of the city's designs.
Situated in the Ishfahan province, Kashan is one the oldest cities of Iran. It was of the major seats of the pre-historic civilization.
Encircled by desert, Kashan cannot source locally. Originally Merino wool was imported from Manchester (UK) to create some of Iran's finest carpets. In more recent times Kashan rugs have used wool sourced from Sabzevar (in the north-east of Iran) which produces some of the very best wool in Iran.
