Story Behind the Art Abadeh rug originated in its namesake city in south-central Iran. The most outstanding aspect of an Abadeh rug is its distinctive pattern. All rugs from this region have a single, diamond-shaped medallion in the center that divides the rug into 4 corner-pieces. There are four smaller motifs placed at the four corners with a gul anchoring each of the corner motifs. The central medallion features several stylized geometrical patterns of flowers, birds and animals. These patterns combine a mix of Caucasian and Iranian design elements. The red field is intricately filled with numerous tiny stylized patterns of trees, stars, flowers, birds, colored polygons, and 4-legged animals. Some Abadeh rugs feature the Zellol Sultan pattern. This is a Persian floral design that consists of a repeated motif of a vase of flowers flanked on either side by a pair of birds. Abadeh have a thin, tightly knotted pile which is cut very close, so the finished rug is very flat and firm. Because of the tight construction, the finished rug has a dense structure and is more rigid than most other types of Persian rugs. Abadeh rugs are very durable and will retain their shape and quality for a long time, making them excellent value for money.Made by skilled craftsman, the rug is a beautiful symphony of bold motifs, stunning colors and consummate artisanship.
