This week’s Wednesday Wishlist rug, an antique Persian Kashan Dabir Carpet, is wonderfully colorful and full of detail. Its field depicts a lush scene of exotic animals and flowering trees; Birds of every kind peek out from behind tree branches, and fawns and rabbits playfully prance along the equally detailed border. Composed in vibrant blues, peaches, and reds, this rug would add a lush element to any interior.
Kashan, the Persian region of this rug’s origin, has been an important area for Persian art for centuries. In addition to fine rugs, this area is known for producing beautiful silk textiles and ceramics. Kashan rugs are known for their elaborately designed fields and vibrant colors, both of which are beautifully illustrated in this example from Nazmiyal. Animal scenes, as well as garden scenes, are popular motifs in these rugs. Kashan Dabir rugs are particularly fine, as they are made from soft Merino w0ol.
The lively colors and playful animal motif of this beautiful antique Persian Kashan carpet are perfect for livening up any interior. If you’re looking to add a vibrant element to your home, this gorgeous carpet is just the thing!
