Kashan was one of the famous rug weaving oasis cities of Safavid Persia - now Iran, and particularly well known for it's production of very fine wool on cotton foundation, and also more rarely, silk carpets.Production of carpets from Kashan were at their height during the 18th and 19th centuries.These famous carpets use the most curvlinear and dense patterining of all carpets,often with a single medallion in the center and Persian floral motifs, including arabesques,flower-stems, palmettos, rosettes, blossom and leaf motifs. Kashan designs are always elegant, fluid and highly accomplished and the weaving ıtself very sophisticated.The wool is usually extremely fine and soft ,the knotting tight, and the pile dense.

Many of todays Keshan carpets reflect the beauty of the older /antique carpets
