The rugs are named after the city of Abadeh, half way between Isfahan and Shiraz in Iran, where these rugs are made. They were traditionally sold to the Qashqai people in their north/south seasonal migration.
The rugs often feature a large diamond pattern in the centre, with smaller ones in the corners also.
