More about the provenance Khorassan | Iran

The translation of "Khorassan" from the Persian language means "land of the rising sun". Khorassan is a province in North East Persia with Mashad as its capital. In the South of Khorassan you have deserts and North of it mountains. Khorassan is an expression for the rugs coming from througout the province like e.g. from Mashad, Birjand or Kashmar. Even until way into the 20th century rugs have been called Khorassan generally not differenciating between the single provenances. One common characteristic of Khorassan rugs is a certain red which goes into bordeaux, generous medallions and a particularly soft wool material being used. Altogether Khorassan rugs are high quality rugs with an important tradition.
