Hamadan Rugs

Hamadan is a city situated in the western part Persia. It is one of the world’s oldest cities as Ekbatana, it was once the capital of the Medes. The best of these Persian rugs are sold under their own names such as Nahavand, Tuiserkan, Malayer or Hosseinabad. More simple Persian rugs from the area are sold under the generic term Hamadan. Hamadan has a green mountainous area in the foothills of the 3574-metre Alvand Mountain, in the midwest part of Persia. The city is 1850 meters above sea level. In this persian rug design, rectangular rod medallions are common, as well as Boteh, which are geometric patterns characterized by a pear-like repeated motif pointing upwards. Herati patterns that comprise of a flower inside a rhomb surrounded by four acanthus-leaves and get their name from the city of Herat in Northwestern Afghanistan are also frequently used. Colours in these Persian rugs also widely vary and can include red, green, blue, yellow, and beige. The foundation of Hamadan Rugs, the strong threads that make up the base of Persian carpets, is usually made of cotton, and in some cases wool or goat hair. The knot density of Hamadan Rugs, a traditional measure for quality of handmade Persian carpets and handmade Persian rugs, ranges from 30 knots per square inch (KPSI) on the low end to 120 KPSI on the high end. For two Persian rugs of the same age, origin, condition and design, the one with the higher number of knots will be the more valuable. The main Hamadan Persian rug pile, determined by the density and the length of the carpet fibres that are used to weave these rugs, is normally made up of wool.
