Description

A Persian city, at an altitude of 6,500 feet, is an important center in the rug industry. Since rugs are woven in the whole of the surrounding region, it is not surprising that in the city itself a great number of accessory industries are established. The wool is often spun in the city, and is then sent into the country, where weaving is carried on. Hamedan is also a center for the dyeing of yarn. Although rugs have been produced there for centuries, not all those described as Hamedani come from the city itself, but from the surrounding districts. The older Hamedan rugs were colored with vegetable dyes, but in the city itself, since the 1880s the industry has gradually adopted the use of aniline colors. It is principally the red which is an aniline color. Formerly madder was used for all tones of red and also a dye found in Persia and India (its use is known only in certain of the older Shiraz rugs, or saddle-bags).
