Joshaghan is a town located in central Iran, north of Isfahan city and very close to the town of Kashan. Characteristic designs of the Joshaghan carpets are Rhombi. Also characteristic are the repetitive designs of flowers “mina khani”, henna flowers, or even pomegranate trees.




On the borders there are perimetrically woven meanders. Red is the dominant color used on a blue or beige background. The best carpets are from the Joshaghan and are called Muchakar or Murcecar and Meymeh.
