Village rugs such as the Hamadan rugs are typically woven in smaller in sizes. Runners can be found in sizes ranging from 3’ x 16’ to 3’ x 33’. Hamadan weavers used the Ghiordes or Turkish knot to create their rugs. The weavers also use a single-weft weaving technique called the Hamadan weave where one row of weft separates each row of knots.
Hamadan rugs are known for their geometric patterns. The most common designs found on these rugs include medallion-and-corner patterns or all-over boteh or Herati designs. Ivory, red, blue, and brown is frequently used in Hamadan rugs, which is a great color to incorporate in your home to achieve a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
