An antique Kashan, Circa the first half of 20th century, No- 5728 (211x137cm)

Most city carpet designers adhere to deep-rooted traditions, with designs often repeated in various forms. The work of those who break the norms and create authentic designs stands out as extraordinary, as demonstrated by the example here. Although one can discern the influence of regional traditions and thus identify the work as originating from Kashan, the creative design and use of beautiful autumn hues are unusual and highly pleasing to the eye.
