Isfahan is a city in central Iran that flourished in the 15th Century in rug weaving. At the time, Isfahan rugs were the finest in the industry with high knot counts and high-quality wool. Today it is much the same. Isfahan rugs are often woven on silk or cotton foundations with the finest wool used in the pile. Isfahan rugs tend to have a very high knot count and are typically cut low, all adding to the fine quality of these rugs. This Isfahan is no exception. With a knot count of approximately 430 kpsi and woven on a silk foundation, this Isfahan is very high-quality. Like many Isfahan rugs, it has a central medallion on an ivory field with predominate colors of blues and reds through the pattern. This particular piece measures 5'3"x7'9" and would be a beautiful focal point in a library, study or living room.
