The weavers in this village in south western Iran produce carpets that have been influenced by much older Persian designs. The most common pattern, which resembles that made by the Qashqa’i weavers, is a geometrical one – a large diamond shaped field filled wit a medallion surrounded by small flowers and leaf patterns. This design is tightly woven in short pile on fine cotton warps in bright, primary colours, particularly deep reds. Another design that appears less frequently is a repeating patter of baskets of red flowers.
Abadeh rugs come in sizes ranging from 3 by 2 foot mats to 7-foot square carpets. They’re moderately expensive in price, and generally of good quality.
