An Abaadeh carpet is a type of Persian carpet made in the town of Abadeh in Iran.

History[edit]

The rugs are named after the city of Abadeh, half way between Isfahan and Shiraz in Iran, where these rugs are made.[1] They were traditionally sold to the Qashqai people in their north/south seasonal migration.[citation needed]

Design[edit]

The rugs often feature a large diamond pattern in the centre, with smaller ones in the corners also.[1]
