More about the provenance Saman | Iran
Saman is located in Western Central Iran. Saman is a Bakhtiari village which belongs to the district of Isfahan. The Bakhtiari rugs woven here are have relatively thick knots and high pile. Therefore they are quite stiff in the grip. Saman rugs are mainly traded in Isfahan. Altogether a nice solid reliable Persian rug.
This Oriental carpet has a so called "garden design" or as in Persian "Kheshti". The design of Oriental "garden rugs" represents sophisticated garden layouts from a bird's eye view. The oldest garden rugs date back to the 16th century. The legendary rug "Spring of Khosrow" of Khosrow the Sassanide king served as a template. The rugs are divided into fields which are separated by water ditches. The ditches in which often fish and ducks are swimming are flanked by bushes and flowers. Altogether garden rugs are an expression of the special Oriental love of floral beauty which peaked in fantastically laid out gardens.
