Kashans are hand knotted on vertical looms using cotton warps and wefts and good quality wool pile that is closely cropped. The pile often has a silky feel to it and is of very high quality. Kashans are among the finest carpets produced today, but the standard of individual items varies rather more than it does with Isfahans and it is important to assess each item on its own merits. They may be woven on either cotton or silk foundations, with between 200 to 400 Persian knots per square inch (pure silk items may have 600 or more).
