Hand-knotted Persian carpets from the Iranian provenance Abadeh, a region between Shiraz (Shiras) and Isfahan, are characterised by their robustness, which makes them perfect companions in everyday life. While these carpets cannot keep up with the finer carpets e.g. from Isfahan or Nain in their knot density of 140,000-320,000 knots per m2, they are nevertheless of very good quality. Mostly Abadeh carpets are knotted in shades of red and have a rosette in the centre with blue shades. They are inspired by carpets of the Ghashgai nomads who passed through Abadeh. Following their example, natural motifs and ornaments, such as those of animals and plants, are often found on the carpets.
