More about the provenance Kashan | India

Kashan (also: "Keshan") is located in central Iran at the old Caravan Street which leads from Teheran to Kashan, Qum, Yazd, Kerman, then further to India and Pakistan. The peak glory time of Kashan was under the reign of the Safavids in the 16/17th century. Kashan rugs belong to the best classic Oriental rugs. Kashans are mostly woven with the Persian knot as opposed to the Turkish knot with which most Persian rugs are made. This rug is a high quality Indian reproduction.

This Oriental rug has been treated with a "Noble Finish" wash. This wash includes not only the actual cleaning of the carpet but also its processing (ennobling) which represents an increase in the Oriental carpet's value. By this special technique a soft and silky feel and shine are added to the carpet. This washing technique requires experience and skill since otherwise carpets could easily be damaged by it. In this case the washing was implemented perfectly.
