Nestled halfway between Isfahan and Shiraz in Iran lies the city of Abadeh.
Abadeh carpets were historically sold to the Qashqai nomads during their seasonal migrations and Abadeh weavers fetched much of their inspiration from the Qashqai tribes who had their summer pastures in the area.
The carpets typically feature a large diamond pattern in the middle with smaller diamond like patterns in each corner. The field is often decorated with figural elements such as birds, trees and flowers and can be found in many exciting colour combinations. The most typical being red/brown nuances with blue tones.
Abadeh carpets have a short wool pile which makes them very stable and durable, suitable for frequented areas such as hallways and entrances.
Abadeh carpets decorate homes worldwide and are appreciated for their good quality, beautiful patterns and colour combinations.
Our collection of Patina carpets is comprised of older Persian carpets that all show signs of natural wear and ageing. The carpets are carefully selected with the intention of preserving their cultural heritage and breathing new life into them. All our Patina carpets are washed before undergoing a thorough inspection. If any signs of damage are found these are attended to, and if the pile is unevenly trimmed it is gently polished down to achieve an even pile and add a natural sheen to the carpet.
The result is a one-of-a-kind carpet that still possesses all the qualities of an older hand-knotted carpet. A beautiful carpet with a genuine feel that has intentionally been allowed to retain a distinct patina appearance: to be discovered and admired by yet another generation to come.
