Great example of the Persian rug weaving culture of central Iran...!!
This semi-antique pure silk Keshan rug is a perfect tribute to the rug weaving centers in and around Kashan.
Made of pure silk, this Keshan is about 70 years old and was part of a collection of rare Persian rugs by an owner, who was a proud collector of rare and fine Persian rugs. If you are a fan of Persian rugs and like more information about the Kashan rugs, please watch the video below as I share some details about this Kashan and the Kashan rug weaving culture. You will be able to view the video in desktop view.
This Kashan rug is a rare find as the pure silk pieces are very hard to find and the ones in this quality and condition tend to be very expensive. The silk is extremely soft and as is common in the pure silk Keshan rugs, the dyes are all natural with earthly colors. Design in this piece is very traditional for the Kashan rugs with the heavy influence from the surrounding rug centers being that Kashan is located inside the Isfahan province. As is often found with the pure silk Kashan rugs, you have the Kashan design with the weave of the same level as the nearby Qum weavers and colors that are heavily influenced from the workshops in Isfahan.
