Many of the current day Isfahans are very bright colours with strong reds and blues and are very ornate in their patterns. This piece has a very subtle colouring of pale gold with soft peach and delicate duck egg blue. The background of the centre panel is silk, and the almost self pattern is in wool and vice versa on the borders. When you look closely at the background, it is covered with flowers, leaves and birds.

The Iranian city of Isfahan (also spelt Esfahan) has long been one of the centres for producing the famous Persian carpet (or rug). Isfahani carpets are known for their high quality. The most famous workshop in Isfahan is Seirafian.
Isfahan rugs are knotted on either silk or cotton foundations, using excellent quality wool, which is usually clipped quite low and is referred to in Iran as kork wool. The Persian word "Kork" means "soft down". This name is wonderful soft wool for very high-quality rugs, especially for expensive carpets. The rugs of Isfahan are more colourful and richer in tone than that of Nain, a nearby city renowned for its exceptional handmade rugs. Antique Isfahan rugs are quite sought after since production had been almost completely halted since 1722, during which the Afghan invasion occurred. It was not until the beginning of the 20th century that it was firmly reestablished.
