Persian Hamedan Rugs

Persian Hamedan rugs have typical patterns and sizes. The patterns and medallion vary varying with allover the patterns which occur. Among individual patterns, the Herati is the most common pattern. They usually use dominant colors by different nuances of indigo blue and madder red. Older Hamedan rugs can be very attractive products. In the city itself, Hamedan, they manufacture carpets of considerably higher quality. They call them Shahr-Baff (Shahr=city, Baff=knot) which are similar in structure to the Bidjar carpets. But they are rare on the market today. 

Colors and Patterns

They manufacture the rugs with a ropy, shiny, and almost natural dyed hand-spun yarn, that provides a very durable surface and beautiful color scale. Common for all these carpets is that they are nowadays made on a cotton warp with one weft. The patterns are mostly geometrical, but sometimes floral motifs occur. Materials and design can be of very varying quality. They used to tie the old carpets on wool wrap (before 1920), different from today’s cotton warp. The younger carpets (after 1960) often have synthetic colors and less fine wool than older carpets. The most common sizes are Dozar and also Zaronim (which are approximately 200×120 cm and 150×100 cm).
 
In general, Hamedan rugs can be said to be of good quality carpets. Examples of Hamedan carpets are Burchalow, Enjilas, Hosseinabad, Lilihan, Khamse, Zanjan, and finally Malayer carpets. As a matter of fact, almost all these rugs are under the Hamedan category.
