Shahsavan

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 Monsieur et Madame Claeys, Je tiens à vous remercier encore de tout coeur pour votre accueil et votre patience sans pareils à chacune de mes visites. Merci de m'avoir permis de changer d'avis et de choisir finalement ce très beau tapis qui convient parfaitement à mon petit hall d'entrée tant au niveau du motif moins chargé que des dimensions -un tout petit peu moins long- que du coloris plus doux par rapport à celui que j'avais précédemment retenu. Cette possibilité offerte à vos clients d'emporter les tapis chez eux pour les présenter dans leur contexte réel fait aussi partie des qualités tellement appréciées de votre belle enseigne. Je vous souhaite de continuer à prospérer dans vos activités commerciales comme dans tous les autres domaines. Avec mes salutations cordiales, A. Laforge
