Kashan carpets

The city of Kashan in central Iran has been renowned for its fine rugs and carpets for centuries. Similar to many other important Persian city's, the production of rugs and carpets virtually ceased after the Afghan invasion in the early eighteenth century. The late nineteenth century saw a revival of the craft led by the governor of Kashan Zufilkhar Ed Din Mochtashem. The fine carpets of that era were produced using fine merino wool and are often referred to as Motashem Kashans these carpets are among the best ever produced in Iran.
