Isfahan is a city in central Iran, and was once one of the largest cities in the world. This city has a rich history. Handmade Isfahan carpets or Handmade Isfahan Rugs are known for their very high quality and nice design. They are woven in silk or wool on a or cotton silk base.
Historically known for their bold colors of blue and red, Isfahan Rugs now use more subtle colors which make them very popular worldwide. Common patterns are mostly symmetrical with a single medallion surrounded by curvilinear vines, palmettos and floral motifs. Other designs are of the tree of life and are from Shah Abbas field.
Handmade Isfahan carpets are considered one of a kind and deserve much admiration. Not only they possess a superb quality, but they have also superficial designs because they are uniquely made by master artisans. They simply cannot be imitated easily because they have characteristics and qualities that make them far above from machine-made rugs.
