Rugs and carpets have been produced in the Persian village of Joshagan for several centuries. Joshagan is situated just north of the famous Persian city of Isfahan, but rugs and carpets manufactured by the people of Joshagan are more a kin to rugs and carpets from the Hamadan region. The characteristic Joshagan design of a series of lozenges scattered evenly across the field which often include stylized flowers is instantly recognizable, but is also used by the nearby village of Mei Mei. Rugs and carpets from Mei Mei are known in the trade as Mei Mei Joshagan, but there are generally not as fine or as highly prized as original old Persian Joshagan rugs and carpets. An authenticated 18th century Persian Joshagan rug can be found in the Victoria & Albert museum London.
