Kashan Rugs

Kashan is city of the Isfahan province. Interestingly, The Safavid kings, who ruled during one of the most significant periods in Persian history in the 16th-18th century, used Kashan as a place for taking their summer holidays. Baghe e fin (roughly translated as the garden of Fin – Fin being a village near) is one of the most famous gardens in Persia, and one likes to imagine the great kings of the past taking a stroll around them during their vacation. The garden of Fin inspires some of the designs and patterns on Kashan rugs, made up normally of patterns of medallions inter-wined and repeated all over the surface of these Persian rugs. The colours that are used in Kashan rugs are normally red, navy blue, beige and green. The knot density of Kashan rugs, a traditional measure for quality of handmade Persian carpets and handmade Persian rugs, ranges from 90 knots per square inch (KPSI) on the low end to 220 knots per square inch (KPSI) on the high end. Kashan Persian rugs normally 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 silk that is not often used within the pile. The use of silk within Kashan rugs follows into the foundation, the strong threads that make up the base of Persian carpets, which is normally made up of silk or cotton.
