Information about Nahavand carpet from Persia / Iran.
This carpet is knotted in the Hamadan area in northwestern Persia. The carpet is characteristically coarsely knotted with shiny wool of high quality. The colours are usually red or blue with pattern consisting elements of nomadic and geometric motifs. Medallions can also occur.
Wool is a natural textile fibre and one of the most sought after materials for rug making. Wool rugs are highly durable and perfectly capable of resisting wear and tear of every day use. Wool has a naturally dirt-repelling effect and is easy to keep clean. It is also flame resistant and characteristically retains it’s shape so that the pile of the rug always rises.
