Nahavand carpets are made in the village of Nahavand near to the city of Hamadan, situated in the western part of Iran. Nahavand has a long history of carpet weaving and trading going back thousands of years. The colours of Hamadan’s are typically dominated by different hints of sapphire blue and madder red although various other colours such as browns and greys and shadowy reds are not at all uncommon. The carpets are woven with a natural dyed handspun yarn that provides a very durable surface and beautiful colour scale. The patterns are mostly geometrical. Materials and design can be of very varying quality. The carpets, as with this piece have a lovely sheen – although Nahavands are quite distinctive each carpet with their own character and personal charm.
