Characteristics of Hamadan Rugs:

  1. Durability: Hamadan rugs are known for their robust and sturdy construction. They are typically made from high-quality wool, which contributes to their longevity.
  2. Weaving Technique: These rugs are hand-knotted, and they often feature a single-weft construction, which is a distinctive characteristic of many Hamadan rugs. The knot density can vary, but they usually have a moderate to high number of knots per square inch.
  3. Materials: The primary material used is wool, often sourced from the region. The wool is known for its softness and durability. The foundation of the rug is usually cotton.
  4. Design and Patterns: Hamadan rugs feature a wide variety of designs, reflecting the diversity of the villages and tribes in the region. Common motifs include geometric patterns, medallions, floral designs, and boteh (paisley) motifs. The designs are often bold and striking.
  5. Colours: The colour palette of Hamadan rugs is typically vibrant and includes reds, blues, ivory, and earth tones. The dyes used are often natural, giving the rugs a rich and enduring colour.
