Guide to Antique Persian Abadeh Rugs
Abadeh Rugs – Abadeh is a town in southern Iran halfway between Isfahan and Shiraz where many Qashqai, Lori and Afshari tribes have settled. They are similar in look to Persian rugs from Shiraz but differ in their use of blue cotton weft.
A diamond or clover leaf shaped medallion is sometimes displayed in the center field. These beautiful antique rugs have a varied color palate of red, terracotta, blue, green and ivory. Considered highly desirable by collectors and admirers of antique Persian rugs, Abadeh rugs espouse many of the qualities and characteristics that typify the finest pieces.
Culturally important works, Abadeh rugs serve as a wonderful example of the artistic heights achieved by the master rug makers of Persia.

Since we buy and sell more antique rugs and carpets than anyone else in the United States of America, our inventory keeps changing – almost on a daily basis! So you never know, the next time you visit the Nazmiyal site (or perhaps even today) there might be some new additions to our antique carpet collection.
