Isfahan Rugs - Esfahan Carpets - Beautiful Rugs
Isfahan or Esfahan, located in central Iran, during the Safavid dynasty in the 16th and 17th centuries became the capital of Persia. UNESCO has designated it as a world heritage city for its architecture — palaces, tiled mosques, minarets, and other historical buildings — as well as its monuments, paintings, artifacts.
Beautiful Rugs has several handmade Isfahan rugs that include a large area Persian Isfahan rug (catalog number 475) with a deep red field with a small central medallion of a circular rosette enclosed within a diamond formed by eight shah abbasi lotus flowers, and more bright yellow to mid-brown shah abbasi flowers, round rosettes, serrated leaves and tendrils that form elegant arabesque circles and semi-circles in the red field, and since they are fairly widely space they leave most of the red field visible. The main border is navy blue and uses darker red floral patterns of shah abbasi motifs.
