Persian rugs are famous within the carpet marketplace, standing renowned for their beautiful works all over. There are various styles and titles of Persian carpets—among them is the Kashan, one of the oldest and finest on the market. Their silk designs are one of a kind, and for anyone looking to make their first Persian rug purchase, the Kashan is a fantastic choice.
The Kashan rugs surfaced from one of the oldest cities, Kashan, Iran, that shares its namesake. The origin of the Kashan dates back to the 17th century though some experts believe that some of the Kashan’s designs draw back to the 16th century.
Sales of the Kashan across domestic and international markets began around the 19th century. As sales rose, Kashan rugs fell into the spotlight, becoming a regularly utilized piece across households and collections worldwide. They continue to sell extremely well and be considered as one of the finest Persian carpets.
A Kashan rugs’ foundations are usually cotton, though their older pieces are made from pure silk. The body frame is crafted with wool that sometimes has silk mixed within. The finished texture of Kashan rugs is normally tight, yet soft to the touch. Normally, a Kashan rug would utilize vegetable dyes to provide this unique texture, but newer incarnations utilize chemical dyes that don’t necessarily give it the same allure.
