Where is KASHAN?

KASHAN is located 258 km (160 miles) south of TEHRAN. It is a large oasis town along the western edge of the great desert, KAVIR, in the province of ISFAHAN in central IRAN.

 

The central heights of the country cross this township and part of it is located in a vast plain while the other part is in a mountainous area. The climate, like all of central IRAN, varies depending on the topography of the region. The mountainous areas are cold and the plains, especially the desert margins, are warm. KASHAN is one of the oldest cities of IRAN. Archeological excavations in the Sialk hills (located 4 km west of the city) indicate that this area was the home of pre-historic humans.

KASHAN rugs and carpets are made from good quality wool, often using kurk wool (from the neck of lambs).

They use extremely dense Persian or asymmetrical knots. Clear blues, shades of red, and beige and ivory form the field with numerous contrasting colors for the design. Many floral patterns are used, including arabesques, palmettos and leaf motifs, which are great for traditional and classical decors. KASHAN had a well established silk rug industry as early as the 17th century and their patterns have not changed much since that time. By the end of the Second World War, it was estimated that the city of Kashan could operate 12000 professional looms simultaneously.

KASHAN carpets and rugs have the greatest curvature and visibility among those of the cities in central of IRAN. They all have similar patterns--a single medallion in the center and Persian floral motifs, including arabesques and flower-stems, palmettos, rosettes, blossom and leaf motifs, forming one of the densest patterns.

KASHAN rugs and carpets have Persian knots, The weave is fine to exceptionally fine. The quality of the carpet depends upon the number of knots, which varies, but averages from around 120 KPSI (30 RAJ) up to 842 KPSI (80 RAJ).
