Isfahan rug patterns are normally focus around a central medallion and flora, with beautiful depictions of flowers, repeated in a mesmerizing pattern around the centre. The colours employed by Isfahan rugs makers include wonderful beige, cream, red, and blue across the surface of these Persian rugs. The knot density of the Isfahan rugs, a traditional measure for quality of handmade Persian carpets and handmade Persian rugs, ranges from 100 knots per square inch (KPSI) on the low end to 500 knots per square inch (KPSI) on the high end. Isfahan rug makers are amongst some of the most skilled in the world, and Isfahan rugs have a pile, determined by the density and the length of the carpet fibres that are used to weave these Persian rugs, of wool or wool & silk or silk on a foundation, the strong threads that make up the base of Persian carpets, of cotton or silk. The price for Isfahan rugs is generally higher than most due to the raw ingredients like silk that they use during the rug making process.
