  • Notes:
  • Joshagan oriental rugs have been woven continuously for centuries by the people of the Persian village of Joshagan. It is believed that as early as the 17th century, during the golden years of rug weaving of the Safavid era, Joshagan rugs were woven for export. Joshagan is located in north central Iran, just north of the city of Isfahan. Its location on an early important trading road leading South from Kashan to Isfahan, made it a principal market center. The design of Joshagan rugs has remained relatively unchanged for centuries and is easy to identify. The design fits well into our study of Oriental Rugs by Design. The most common pattern of the rug is a diamond-shaped central medallion on a deep red field filled with geometric shaped floral motifs that can resemble snowflakes or pebbles. Four-petal flowers are often found within the medallion.
