    DESCRIPTION:
    Mehraban is a group of villages north of Hamadan. Of the 61 villages in this group, 57 are devoted to making rugs according to the traditional techniques: symmetrical knots, single weft, high and shiny pile thanks to the excellent quality of the local wool. One noteworthy feature of these rugs is the use of a very twisted cotton yarn for the warp, which makes the underside rough. These rugs are made in large sizes and runners, and the typical pattern is the early 20th century "American Sarough" floral spray, in bright colours: usually various shades of pink, azure and orange.
     
    RUGS WOVEN BY NOMADS: Nomads move continuously and do not stay permanently in one geographic region.They weave handmade carpets on collapsible looms. Due to that fact there may be slight variations in weaving and the different shades of wool with sometimes uneven in shape giving it a real feeling of a genuine nomadic handicraft. The weaving is made from memory and it depends on each artisans momentary inspiration. The workmanship is of high quality from hand spun wool to preparing the natural dyes from organic plants and roots to dye the wool in different colors in preparation for weaving. Persian Handmade rugs have a timeless appeal which transcends the whims of fashion, and are one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly flooring options available. Each unique design represents the artistic vision and fine craftsmanship by the hand of the weaver.
