A Vintage Joshegan handmade rug No. 600612 372x287cm

This magnificent piece stands as a testament to a culture spanning millennia. Originating from the ancient town of Josheghan, situated approximately 50 kilometers northwest of the Sialk ziggurat dating back to 3000 BC, this carpet embodies tradition and cultural heritage. Carpets from this region serve as custodians of centuries-old craftsmanship and artistry.
The design adorning this rug traces its roots to the early 17th century when King Abbas of the Safavid dynasty established royal carpet workshops in Josheghan, near Isfahan, the capital of the Safavid Empire at the time. Though carpet weaving in the area predates this era, it flourished under royal patronage and continues to endure today.
Known as "The Jungle Design," this carpet showcases one of the most renowned Persian geometric patterns. Crafted by skilled weavers who imbue each rug with their expertise and passion, every piece is a unique masterpiece, reflecting the creator's individuality.

Now over 80 years old, this carpet has aged gracefully, its natural wear infusing it with a subdued elegance and captivating texture. Such a piece not only adds to the charm of a space but also contributes to its overall elegance and allure.
