If you have a rug like this one, you may have an authentic Isfahan from Iran commonly known as a Persian Rug.
You want to bring this one to us or to another Master Rug Cleaner because, the red fields of the rug can bleed when wetted for cleaning. This rug has some Dye bled from previous washing that will have to address and correct. Area rugs from around the world have a story and here we love to tell and learn the stories.
