Hamedan Persian Rugs
Persian Hamedan rugs are easily recognized with their typical patterns and sizes. The patterns are very varying and the medallion as well as carpets with repeated patterns occur. Among individual patterns, the Herati is the most common pattern.The colors are dominated by different nuances of indigo blue and madder red. Older Hamedan rugs can be very attractive products. In the city itself, Hamedan, carpets were manufactured with a considerably higher quality. The carpets were called Shahr-Baff (Shahr=city, Baff=knot) and are similar in structure to the Bidjar carpets. But they are rare on the market today.
