Questions about this piece?


This beautiful Persian rug was created in the Persian city of Isfahan, long known for its excellent carpet-making artisan tradition.

The rug is crafted from woven wool and features a rectangular central panel adorned with two symmetrical trees and a central stylised geometrical vase from which seven large ruby-coloured rosettes stand all contained within a mihrab-like arch above a background of scrolling foliage motifs.

The main panel is flanked by various concentric border friezes, including smaller ones featuring delicate flower motifs, and a larger one that displays a pattern based on the traditional Middle-Eastern pomegranate motif.

The use of colour adds great dimension to the decorative poetry of this carpet. The central panel’s cream-coloured background provides the piece with an ivory feel, fit for the serenity desired in a prayer rug.

The lower edge of the central panel features shades of pale blue and green, which emulate a river and its margin, providing a refreshing setting to the floral arrangement. The complex foliage motif ensuing from the vase and foliage is executed in the traditional colours of Isfahan carpets, including shades of red, deep-blue, green and various shades of pastels.

Crafted by skilled artisans who have honed their expertise over generations, this Isfahan Carpet is woven using the finest wool sourced from the region, allowing for an impressively detailed representation of elements. Each step in the creation process is executed with attention to detail, resulting in a rug that exudes solemnity and grandeur.

This carpet is a union of spirituality and artistry, an emblem of faith but also a testament to the dedication of the artisans of Isfahan.
