Persian Hamedan rugs have typical patterns and sizes. The patterns and medallion are very varying with allover patterns which occur. Among individual patterns, the Herati is the most common pattern.They usually use dominate colors by different nuances of indigo blue and madder red. Older Hamedan rugs can be very attractive products.

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 Hamedan category.

Where is Hamedan?

Hamedān (pronounced [Hæmædɒːn]) or Hamedān (Persian: همدان‎‎, Hamadān) (Old Persian: Haŋgmetana, Ecbatana) is the capital city of Hamedan Province of Iran. At the 2006 census, its population was 473,149, in 127,812 families. Hamadan is among the oldest Iranian cities and one of the oldest in the world. Some historical statements say that the Assyrians occupy the city in 1100 BCE. It seems like the ancient Greek historian, Herodotus, states that it was the capital of the Medes, around 700 BCE.

Hamadan has a green mountainous area in the foothills of the 3,574-meter Alvand Mountain, in the mid-west part of Iran. The city is 1,850 meters above sea level. The special nature of this old city and its historic sites attract tourists during the summer to this city. The location is approximately 360 kilometers (220 miles) southwest of Tehran. The main symbols of this city are the Ganj Nameh inscription, the Avicenna monument and also the Baba Taher monument. Although, the majority of the population is Persian. However, there is a considerable Azerbaijani minority.
