Kashan rugs originate from Kashan, an oasis town in central Iran along the Kavir desert. It is one of Iran's oldest cities, with archaeological excavations in the Sialk hills indicating that prehistoric humans lived here. Kashan had a well-established silk area rug industry as early as the 17th century. Kashan rugs are still woven according to the time-honored traditions of the old masters, using the same basic designs. Kashan rugs were once widely coveted by kings and could be found on palace walls all over the world. As a result, it is also referred to as "the palace carpet."

Extremely dense Persian knots are used to weave Kashan rugs, producing an exquisite object of art.

Care Instructions

Vacuuming regularly means you won’t have to get it professionally cleaned as often and it will definitely look nicer and last longer. For best results, vacuum front and back side of rug, from side to side, avoiding fringes.  


Avoid spills, but if they do occur, blot them immediately with a paper towel, then spray water on the spot of the spill and blot again, and repeat as needed. Spray white vinegar on pet urine to help break down the enzymes that cause the bad odour.

Professional Rug Cleaning:

When needed, get your area rug cleaned. Otherwise, the dirt begins to grind, which is extremely damaging to the materials. The usual time to have your rug professionally cleaned is about 5 years, but you should trust your instincts. When your rugs appear to require cleaning, follow your instincts and have them washed. Hand knotted carpets should never be dry cleaned or steam cleaned.  Wall to wall carpet cleaning companies are usually not a good option.  Always choose professional rug cleaner who specialises in cleaning fine, handwoven carpets.

Rug Pads:

Using a rug pad with your vintage rug will extend its life and provide extra traction and protection for your floors. More info
