JBOC Comments: See also my older Kashan Rugs and Carpets Guide

Souf rugs are popular in Iran and little understood elsewhere except by Persians and people who really know fine carpets. Thy have a three dimensionality that does not come across in a picture. Additionally a Souf is art it is not meant to be walked upon. A Souf is a rug that combines flatweave and pile. Typically the ground is done in Flatweave and the design is executed in pile. Metal wrapped thread is often used. Kashan is traditionally the home of Souf rugs but we also see them from Qum. There are also tribal soufs which I believe come from Khorasan.
