Hamadan rugs

The Persian city of Hamadan was once the capital of Darius the Great. This celebrated old Persian King ruled during the Achaemenid empire from 522BC-486BC. Rug weaving in Hamadan has only been notable since around 1900, but the city soon became the commercial centre for over seven hundred villages in the area, some of which have been weaving rug and carpets for many centuries. The majority of rugs produced in these villages are woven with a single weft technique which results in a distinctive weave pattern.
