It's also one of Persia's most productive and diverse weaving centers. Over the years, many refugees, minorities and ethnic groups have inhabited the area. Like other cities in the western part of Persia, Hamadan produced fine, coarse carpets that are made with the symmetric Ghiordes or Turkish knot. Due to the sheer number of villages in the province of Hamadan and the area's ethnic diversity, many unique designs are featured in these regional rugs. Traditionally, Hamadan has been a center for commercial carpet production. The fragmented ethnic groups that have historically lived in Hamadan include Kurds, Azeri Turks and Islamic people. Antique Hamadan rugs traditionally favor angular designs although large-scale arabesques and curvilinear motifs are also found. They are closely related to rugs produced in the neighboring areas of Bibakabad, Shiraz, Lilian and Dozens of cities that produce local styles.
