Carpets from Isfahan
The Persian carpets (or carpets) woven in Isfahan are perhaps the finest and most valuable in the world. Isfahan carpets are knotted by hand. Many of the high-quality Isfahan carpets are based on silk foundations. Plush and soft, they're still durable and will stand the test of time. A long-lasting treasure is known to become even more beautiful with age.
The art of making Persian rugs has changed little over the years. During the Safavid period, the art of carpet weaving flourished. Shah Abbas, who also loved to weave carpets, moved his capital from Qazvin to Isfahan. Isfahan then became the location of the most renowned center for carpet weaving. A reflection of the extreme esteem the king had for this art.
The carpets from Isfahan are like paintings. The colors are vibrant. Isfahan rugs are beautifully designed, with unique colors and bold contemporary patterns that balance warmth with earthy nuances. Persian carpets were often inspired by the royal heritage (rich architectural history) made up of beautiful tiles, or by the gardens (nature) of cities and palaces. The creators were also inspired by Persian poets (Rumi, Hafez, Attar, etc.).
Persian carpets feature a variety of patterns and distinctive styles. There are never two identical Persian carpets. Everyone is beautiful in their own way.
Signatures and Symbols in Carpets from Isfahan
It is also possible to find signatures woven into oriental Isfahan carpets. These signatures mark the master weavers of Isfahan and their heirs who contributed to the rebuilding of the carpet industry in Isfahan.
The colors, patterns and symbols of a Persian rug hold hidden meanings. For example, the use of the color red in Persian and Oriental carpets symbolizes courage and beauty.
After all, it seems that magical magic carpets do exist. They may not fly, but the beauty and complexity of the patterns they contain can uplift your soul.
