Hamadan

The city and the district of Hamadan is an important centre for the rug trade, as well as the most productive rug production area of Iran. Hamadan is a major city with hundreds of thousands of people. Like Ekbatan, it was a main city of the Achemenian kings. It has an indigenous Jewish population and numerous monuments, of which the most important are the tombs of Esther and Mordicai (central to Jewish pilgrims), and the tomb at Avicenna. Hamadan is a provincial capitol. Two types of rugs are knotted. One is the so-called “city rug”, also known as the Shahrbaff. The production is modern and largely state controlled. The village production, however, is much more important; Hamadan is a market city for many rug producing villages that each has its own pattern. Most prominent are Borchalu, Tuserkman, Memraban, Khamseh, Begardeh, Enjilas, Hosseinabad, Shahsavan and Zandjan. There is a wide range of patterns but the quality is very consistent. The colours are strong, and often plant colours. The patterns are daring, although random, and Hosseinabad and Enjilas in particular are known for through going patterns. The rugs are usually not much bigger than 3 by 2 metres.

Bonjour Mr. Claeys, Je viens de recevoir les 3 coussins kilim Shahsavan et ce à mon entière satisfaction. Ces magnifiques pièces sont totalement conformes à mes attentes non seulement concernant la qualité de finition des coussins mais surtout quant au naturel des teintes. C’est pourquoi, afin de complèter et de réhausser la chaleur de mon coin lecture je vous ai confirmé ce jour une commande complémentaire de 2 pièces. Dans l’attente de cette nouvelle fourniture et vous remerciant de vos bons soins recevez mes meilleures salutations. Louis J. Courtois
