Description

One antique Isfahan cushion from a beautiful set of four cushions hand-crafted from an antique Isfahan rug, which was sadly beyond restoration.  Dating from the late 19th century the natural dyes on these cushions are really stunning, with lovely deep reds, purples, greens and yellows with indigo blues.  You can view all four Isfahan cushions by clicking here.

It is wonderful to be able to produce these hand-crated cushions using remnants of antique carpets. Isfahan is situated virtually in the centre of Iran, and was once the capital city.  They produced classical rugs with intricate floral patterns.  As this rug was around 130 years old, there is some visible wear on every of these antique cushions, adding wonderful character to each one.

These cushions have a soft purple corduroy backing and are filled with feather inserts, there is also a zip to remove the insert if needed.

Purchase this antique Isfahan cushion online and we will safely deliver it to your home.  Alternatively arrange a visit to our barn showroom in Crondall, Surrey to see them all.

We have a large collection of beautiful antique Kilim cushions and antique carpet cushions, all hand-made using antique pieces of kilim and carpet.  Filled with feather inserts and backed with either corduroy or linen, they have been expertly made.  Great old natural antique colours and beautifully hand-stitched and filled with a feather cushion insert.  All of our antique cushions have been hand-stitched using the best materials and inserts.

The rugs are woven in the city itself and the surrounding villages. Starting in the early 17th century, their name was renowned throughout Europe – this has continued to the present day. Although rug making was interrupted by the Afghan invasion, it quickly re-established itself as a major centre for the finest handmade carpets.
