Kashan Rugs: Kashan Rug Late 20th C. Ardistan

3 by 5 Foot Ardistan Kashan Rug

With all my tribal rugs and war rugs and Afghans I have a secret love for rich, thick, formal, Persian rugs. I think it comes from growing up with really good Persian rugs. Besides being pretty there is the pleasure of walking on something that feels this nice. This Persian Kashan is in pristine condition and in every way seems brand new.

Ardistan is the home of what is historically a better grade of Kashan rugs. This rug is not as fine as some but is really a beautiful example. Ardistan is about 75 miles from the city of Kashan but the rugs are considered part of the Kashan type production.
