Kashan Rugs and Carpets Guide

Persian Rugs: Guide to Kashan Rugs and Carpets

Mayor Curley's Kashan Carpet Early 20th c Lot 176

Kashan the home of Kashan Rugs is an oasis town on the old north/south caravan route along the west edge of the Dasht-e Kavir desert. It is currently in the North of Esfahan Province Iran but at various times it has been the seat of its own province. The mountains to the west make life possible by the water they provide. The Dasht-e Kavir desert to the east limits areas open to human habitation.

Looking for Quality Persian Rugs and Carpets?

Over the years I have come to know many of the carpet dealers in the world and I recommend many of them in my Trusted Resource List.
Best wishes,

East of Kashan is one of the most brutal deserts in the world.

Dasht-e Kavir, Iran

Like swirls of paint on an enormous canvas, shallow lakes, mudflats, and salt marshes share the sinuous valleys on Iran’s largely uninhabited Dasht-e Kavir, or Great Salt Desert. This image was acquired by Landsat 7’s Enhanced Thematic Mapper plus sensor.
