ABADEH

Abadeh rugs often feature bold colors, commonly with a red field with an ivory, dark blue or black border. They commonly feature a medallion centered in the middle of the rug, and spandrels covering each corner of the field with a gul anchoring each. Better Abadeh rugs are often woven with nice quality, durable wool, and dense structure. Abadeh rugs do not “drape” as much as other Persian rugs, as construction is very tight and fairly rigid. Design elements often found in the field are cypress trees woven in the center under and above the center medallion, along with scattered small geometric flowers.
