Isfahan rugs and carpets are very symmetrical and balanced and usually have a single medallion surrounded with whorls (vines) and palmettos. The most famous master weaver in Isfahan is Seirafian. There are many FAKES EIRAFIAN signed rugs and carpets. Be careful!
These rugs and carpets usually have ivory backgrounds with blue, rose, and indigo motifs. The foundation warp is mostly silk; weft is cotton, wool, or silk. The majority of master workshop Isfahan rugs have silk warp. You can find cotton warp in older Isfahan rugs.
