The city of Isfahan is the capital of Isfahan province. It is one of the most famous cities in the rug industry, a major producer of all types of handicraft, and also a major tourist attraction for the country. Some of the best master weavers, designers, and artists belong to this region. Isfahan rugs have a very traditional Persian design: a single medallion in the field, surrounded by “Shah Abbasi” flowers, and a border of a strong contrasting color against the field. They come in all possible sizes. Quality of the wool is excellent, the warp is silk, and the weft is either silk or cotton. In some old pieces, cotton warp is more common. Knots are compacted very tightly, and two shots of weft pass over each row of knots. In Isfahan rugs, colors are also very traditional: different shades of red, ivory, and royal blue, with beige and soft green in recent production. Isfahan rugs are very durable, and antique pieces can be found in many famous museums around the world. There are some rugs woven in neighboring cities, such as Najafabad, and called Isfahan by a common mistake. The knot density for Isfahan rugs ranges from 150 up to over 800 KPSI.
