Tafresh Rugs, Carpet, & Area Rugs

Tafresh is a small town located south-west of Tehran, Iran situated between Hamadan and Qum.  The rugs produced here closely resemble those of Hamadan, but tafresh rugs technique is of the highest grade of carpets produced in the Hamadan region.  Tafresh rugs are usually of smaller size and large carpets are rarely found.  The patterns are usually floral with some animal elements, but sometimes geometric styles can be seen.  Expert weavers can work nonstop for several years on a single piece.  But this effort does not go to waste because these carpets have been known to last several hundreds of years.
