About Tafresh Rugs:
Tafresh lies east of the city of Hamadan and is considered a border area of anything recognized as Hamadan made rugs. Tafresh rugs are of excellent quality and design; some of the best in the area. Like Hamadan they are single-wefted but are fairly different in many other aspects.
This design features a central medallion known as a clockface medallion. It is both distinctive and mysterious as to what it represents. It is believed to be a zoroastrian symbol of the sun. These designs are well known to be from the village of Tafresh, however copies can be found from India.
Tafresh also makes smaller rugs and runners, large carpets are rare. Tafresh rugs are typically very desirable and collectible.
About This TAFRESH Rug:
The blue field found in this Tafresh is more rare than finding a red field. If you look at the back of the rug you will notice the colors are brighter. This rug has been faded in the sun which has lightened the colors. Both ends have a Kilim (flat weave) securing the fringe. This rug has a soft, even medium wool pile. Amazing rug for the price.
Condition of this Rug:
This rug has a very soft, medium wool pile. Excellent fringe and selvage on the sides. Feel Free to message me if you want more photographs or have questions.
