Kashan: An important and famous center for oriental rugs production in Iran. The golden age of Kashan with its magnificent court rugs, took place during the Safavid rule in the 16th and 17th centuries. After about a 250-year decline, Kashan began emerging again as a leading weaving center in the late 19th early 20th centuries. During this time Australian wool which was actually spun in Manchester England was used. These "Manchester Kashan" had a glossy sheen to their finish and their floral designs were frequently on a red background. Contemporary Kashan rugs are woven on a cotton foundation, are double wefted and have about 200 knots per square " Their primary design includes a diamond shaped medallion with pendants at top and bottom.
The colours of the rug look different depending on the angle from which you look at it.
