Silk and fine quality wool establish these carpets as very high class. No other city in Persia produced such large quantity or variety of carpets. With or without a medallion, their designs are full of imagination and individuality. Flowers, scenes, stanzas of poems often decorate them. Their predominant colors are beige, blue and red.
