Although small and inconspicuous, Joshagan is among the most important weaving centers in all of former Persia. Located a hundred and forty kilometers north of Esfahan, Joshagan, also called Maymeh, is the place boasting the longest continuous tradition of weaving high-quality woolen carpets. Joshagan rugs are made of the finest wool on the cotton foundation with the application of the asymmetrical Persian knot resulting in an exceptionally durable and tender pile which is a sheer pleasure to look at and to walk on. They are available in a wide variety of sizes, from small to larger pieces, however, the vast majority of them can be found in the medium-size range. Joshagan rugs, just like Bakhtiari rugs, constitute the essence of the top-notch Persian craftsmanship which is not as well-known as creations from Tabriz or Kerman yet intriguing and absolutely one-of-a-kind. When seeking a traditional, high-quality Persian rug, antique Joshagan rugs exemplify tradition, beauty, and workmanship in every way. These rugs often serve as some of the oldest examples of Persian tapestry in the world, and tapestries generally become more valuable over time. These high quality rugs serve as a tangible demonstration of the history and culture of Persian rug creation.
