ABADEH RUGS


Abadehs are woven in the Iranian city of the same name, in a mountain region located in the south of Iran, halfway between Isfahan and Shiraz. They are still made in the same production area, on horizontal looms, following a tradition which dates back to the time when people were mainly nomadic.


They rely on the typical design used by nomadic tribes, of whom the weavers are direct descendants, whereas the structure is the same of Iranian city carpets with a cotton, compact and even weave. Thanks to this structure knots are finer and more robust, a peculiarity which makes Abadeh carpets one of the best purchases in decorative carpets.


It is not by chance that over the last 50 years these carpets have literally conquered the world market, thanks to their qualities, distinguishing themselves from other handwoven carpets in their robustness and classic iconographic repertoire.


Abadehs usually come with detailed naturalistic designs, including stylized and tiny symbols scattered over the whole field. This is generally framed by a large diamond-shaped medallion enclosing another little medallion in the middle. Colorings are always very warm and vivid, with bright red, cream, blue or turquoise as predominant tones. Wool is rigorously dyed with natural dyes.
