KASHMAR Carpet Properties:

Visibility: Carpets made in KASHMAR usually have curvilinear patterns.

Quality: KASHMAR are among the highest quality Persian rugs and carpets produced in Eastern IRAN. They are well known for their patterns and smooth structure.

Size & Shapes: KASHMAR carpets come in different sizes, but the majority of them are mid-size (4 x 6 to 8 x 10 feet). You can also find large rugs up to 10 x 18 feet.

Color: Light blue and cream predominate, with ivory as a contrasting color. Other colors such as soft green, red, and brown are found in newer works.

Texture: Soft wool; thin, tight pile.

Foundation: Warp is mostly cotton; weft is either cotton or wool.

Knots: Weavers in KASHMAR use Persian knots. You should check the back of the carpet because the quality of the carpet depends upon the number of knots, which varies, but averages from around 120 KPSI (30 RAJ) up to 842 KPSI (80 RAJ).

Price: KASHMAR carpets are among the finest quality carpets, so expect to pay $7-$17 Per Square Foot (PSF) for a carpet from KASHMAR. Keep in mind that, as a rule, the higher the KPSI, the greater is the price.

Where is KASHMAR?

NORTH KHORASAN
The KASHMAR Persian rug is a rare and time-honored beauty, handmade by the Persian people living in the province of KHORASAN in Eastern IRAN. The city is slightly southwest of MASHAD, east of TORBAT-E-HAYDARIEH, and 926 km (576 miles) from TEHRAN. In the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, Kashmar produced some very handsome and densely knotted rugs.

KASHMAR carpets are easily distinguishable because of their large size and their unique patterns that borrow design features from different regions. Some have panels with tree motifs on a ground and, between them, a panel with a dome and some minarets set under a column arch with a floral repetition on a beige ground on the main border. Another common pattern is a pictorial that tells the story of a significant occurrence or entity in Persian history.

These might be the pictures of an ancient and respected Persian king, or just an attempt to show the Persian love of beauty and intricate craftsmanship. The overall color harmonies and intricacy of detail make these carpets elegant masterpieces. They are extremely durable and will last a very long time, increasing in beauty as they age.

The Sheshtaraz river, across which Shahi historical dam is constructed, flows in the vicinity of KASHMAR. Its weather is temperate in the northern areas and warm in the southern and plain areas due to the proximity of the desert.

The old name of this city is "TORSHIZ." The actual city of KASHMAR is very rich in history, and has been responsible for producing exquisite carpets for centuries. In 1151 CE, it was surrounded and plundered by Sultan Sanjar Saljooghi.

After that, it became one of the most important centers of the Esmailieh faction. Once this faction was defeated, the city flourished again. But in the 14th century, it was ruined by Amir Taymour Goorkani. The historical sites of this city are:
