Although the city of Kashan lies to the north of Isfahan, to the north-east of Djoshegan and to the north west of Yazd and therefore in the center of a great rug producing region – it cannot be proved with any certainty that rugs were produced in Kashan in the sixteenth or seventeenth centuries. While no rugs of the classic period are known to have been produced in Kashan, rugs of the first half of the nineteenth century which were certainly made there. These are noted for their exceptionally fine knotting. Until quite recently, the Kashan rug makers remained faithful to their tradition of very close knotting but the very short which it was thus possible to obtain was partly abandoned in favor of the demand for a longer pile. The design of Kashan rugs is the medallion, arabesque in form, with appropriate corners, but we find also a repeating pattern with large rosettes and palmettes and other floral designs.
