Our collection of Hamadan Persian Rugs are handwoven in the villages surrounding the ancient city of Hamadan.
Hamadan City acts as the trading hub for the hundreds of nearby carpet weaving villages. The best examples of rugs woven in these villages are sold under their own titles - like Nahavand, Toyserkan and Malayer, while the simple and rustic weaves for the Hamadan area are sold under the generic name Hamadan.
Rug enthusiasts and collectors can identify the particular villages where a rug from the Hamadan region has been woven based on their weaving technique, patterns and colour palettes.
The colours are usually earthy and vibrant tones of indigo blue and madder red. Over time, the vibrant colours mellow to a unique soft toning, these vintage village rugs are especially popular amongst our decorator customers as they tent to work well in contemporary settings.
Hamadan rugs are usually woven to small standard sizes, Dozar and Zaronim (approximately 200x130 cm and 150x100 cm).
