Abadeh carpets

Located on the Isfahan-Shiraz route in southern Iran, Abadeh has developed into a picturesque market town. Handicrafts are of great importance in the historic city and some excellent carpets are woven here.

The carpets are usually based on a cotton warp and have a thin, tightly knotted pile. Most Abadeh rugs have a narrow cut and are therefore very flat. Although some of the older Abadeh rugs vary in style, many of the newer designs are easily recognizable. Known as Heybatlu, these new patterns consist of a single diamond-shaped medallion in the center and smaller medallions at each corner. The pattern usually consists of geometric flowers or animals, and the main colors are bright shades of red or burnt orange on a dark blue background with rich green details.
