About Kashmar Rugs
The Kashmar is a relatively rare carpet produced by master weavers in the province of Khorassan, in north-eastern Iran. The small city of Kashmar is very old, responsible for producing exquisite carpets for centuries. Kashmars are easily distinguishable because of their unique designs and their large size. The patterns are usually historic tableaux telling the story of a significant event in Persian history. Frequently there are views of the ancient ruins and sculpture of Persepolis, the kings Darius and Xerxes, and birds and animals from the Rubayat of Omar Khayam. There are also Kashmar carpets which resemble the classic Kashan, with central medallion and spandrels.

Don't write me, I hate email but I will try to answer questions if you call me at 240-988-4866. I am on Eastern Standard Time in the US. Try not to call me after 10 PM. I am not in the rug business and I work a full time job but if you call my cell phone I will try to help. I am often interested in seeing nice collections.

Thanks and best wishes,
