Hamadan (Hamedan) is the capital city of Hamedan province and is considered to be one of the oldest cities in Persia. Hamadan was established by the Medes and was the capital of the Median Empire. Rugs from Hamadan are woven in the city of Hamadan and its surrounding districts. There are hundreds of villages outside of Hamadan, each of which has its own characteristic style of carpet-weaving. Many villages specialize in producing two or more styles. Hamadan rugs are known for their distinctive color palettes, which are dominated by indigo blue and vibrant red hexagonal or diamond-shaped design elements on ivory, red, blue, or brown backgrounds. Design elements include geometric figures, floral designs, jagged lines, and hooks. Hamadan carpets are woven from hand-spun wool that has been colored with natural dyes.
