Nahavand is located in the southern part of Hamadan province. They are a good example of a nomadic Persian rug, and have geometric pattern with a center medallion. In Nahavand rugs, hand-spun wool and natural dyes are used, resulting in high quality pieces and a very shiny pile. The background is usually a dark blue with soft shades of red as a nice contrast. Foundation is cotton with one single shot of weft passing over each row of knots. This gives the rug a very soft feel. In some older pieces of Nahavand rugs, the weft may be wool. Rugs woven in this region are very unique in their own way. It may be interesting to note that more than 90% of weavers in this region are women. Nahavand rugs come in a variety of different sizes, but do not normally exceed 8 by 10 feet. These rugs are very decorative and therefore in high demand. Average knot density is between 80 and 150 KPSI.
