History of Hamadan Rugs

The art of creating carpets was likely created several thousand years ago in the plains of Central Asia. The nomads required some protection from the cold winters, something that was treated more readily than the sheepskin covers. They also made ornaments for their tents at the same time. The materials used for warping, wafting and stacking came from goatherds and sheep flock.

Hamadan is a town located 300 kilometers south of Teheran in the western portion of Iran. It is one of the oldest towns in the world and is mentioned in the Bible under the name of Ecbatana. The town is a center for carpet trading that is produced from neighboring villages and towns in the hundreds. Under their names like Nahavand, Tuiserkan, Malayer or Hosseinabad, the best of these carpets are sold. Under the generic word Hamadan, more basic carpets from the region are marketed.

The carpets are made of a glossy and most often natural handspun yarn, which offers a very durable surface and a lovely magnitude of hue. All these carpets are commonly produced on cotton weave with a single weft nowadays. Most of the structures are geometric, but there are also floral designs. The quality of fabrics and layout can vary greatly..

The earliest rug of the said style was possibly the Pazyryk rug. In 1949, thePazyryk carpet was excavated from a Scythian nobleman tomb in Siberia AltaiMountains Pazyryk Valley. Radiocarbon testing showed that in the 5th century BCthe Pazyryk carpet was produced.

Its good weaving and elaborate pictorial design suggest at the moment of its manufacturing an advanced state of the art of carpet weaving. Whether it was manufactured in the region where it was discovered or is a product of the production of Achaemenid remains under discussion.
