Hamedan rugs

 
The province of Hamedan is located in the west of Iran, and the city of Hamedan, the capital of this province, in one of the most ancient and historical cities of Iran.

Its origin goes back to the second millennium b.C. the Medes made in their capital. After the conquest of Alexander the Great the Greek (331 b.C.) name Ekbatana was used.

This province is one of the most important regions in Iran that produces large quantities of carpets, but usually they are of commercial quality. Sometimes one can find fine carpets in Hamedan. Few villages make carpets (large size) but rugs predominate, with one or two areas specialising in runners.

In this province the carpets are woven in floral and stylised patterns.

Their designs are corner medallion, flower bouquets, Botteh-Miri, interlaced fish design, which is also known as Harati and Zell-e-Sultan.

The knots of the Hamedan carpets are often Ghiordes and they are thick-piled.

Many years ago the colors used for weaving them was natural beige or camel wool which had a great success amidst the Europeans, as they found them very suitable to spread in the dark and narrow corridors and halls of their buildings. Nowadays they still use these natural colors.
