Large Size Blue-Navy Kashan Persian Oriental Area Rug 10x13 Wool - $ 1252.55
Kashan is an important city in central Iran, with a magnificent history of carpet weaving dating from the 16th century. Classic pieces show a diamond-shaped medallion with small matching spandrels on a floral field, but all-over fields of Shah Abbas flowers, pictorial and hunting scenes are also found. They are mostly in wool, but some have been woven in pure silk. Traditional theme colors are reds and blues, but more recently Kashans have been woven in paler beiges, with greyish-blue and olive-green tones, for the international market.
