Hamedan, an ancient city in Iran dating back to 1000 BC, is famous for its woven rugs and carpets worldwide. Villages, towns, and cities in Hamedan have produced these textiles since the mid-19th century. They feature geometric or semigeometric designs in styles like allover, medallion, and Open Field. Early weavers used wool or cotton foundations with a thick wool pile. Owning an antique Hamadan rug is a tribute to its remarkable craftsmanship, high-quality materials, vibrant colors, and lasting weaving technique, representing a significant piece of ancient history.
