The province of Hamadan, with a capital city of the same name, stretches southeast from Kurdistan toward central Iran. Largely populated by Kurds it has a longstanding tradition of carpet production and many towns in the region are carpet producing to this day. Most Hamadan carpets have low pile, are single wefted and built on cotton foundations. The designs of Hamadan carpets are small geometric repeats often with very subtle gradations in tone.
Malayer and Feraghan too are Hamadan carpets and may be finer than the typical Hamadan. They vary in knotting style and share many of the same designs.
The attribution of carpets to certain tribes, peoples and /or geographic regions is a complex subject. Weavers have, since the beginning, traded patterns and designs as well as experimented with knotting techniques and materials. However it is also true that many patterns have been handed down for generations and the importance of preserving a certain tribal style and technique of weaving cannot be underestimated.
Sorry! Looks like we're all out of this style.
