Isfahan Rugs - From the Enchanted
the Finest Carpets Ever Made
Known as the enchanted city, Isfahan experienced its
'Golden Age' in the seventeenth century when the king, Shah
Abbas, named it the nation's capital.
Among the finest handmade carpets ever made, Isfahan rugs are the
pinnacle of the Persian carpet. In an enchanted city, renowned for
its taste and finesse, these carpets are of great delicacy and
utmost intricacy. The city of Isfahan holds pride of place in the
Persian rug industry because of its rich history and reputation
dating back to the 16th century.
Our Isfahan carpets are finely
detailed in silk foundation; at the
sight of curvilinear vines snaking over an elegant field around an
exquisite medallion, especially if the long fringes glisten silkily
from magnificent borders, the word 'Isfahan' springs to
one's lips. Patterns include pictorial and tree-of-life schemes, as
well as the Shah Abbas field with its floral vines.
