Historically, Isfahan was a weaving and cultural center of great importance with its culmination as the capital of Shah Abbas, the great patron of the arts in the 16th century, The Golden Age of Persian Weaving . Except for the period of the Afghan domination of the early 1700 s, Isfahan has long produced antique carpets of great technical skill and sophisticated aesthetics.
The high knot density antique carpets in which Isfahan excelled continued to be woven in the late 19th and 20th centuries, maintaining the original inspiration and attention to refinement and detail. The finest materials were procured and utilized including silk, lamb s wool (called kerke), and jewel-toned natural dyes to create collectible, investment-level antique Isfahan rugs.
The finest Isfahan rugs are rarely surpassed in the realm of intricate, innovative, gentle swirling embellishments and stained glass-like, luminous dyework.
