We have been busy again picking up rugs for our customers!
We recently came across a beautiful collection of Lilihan Persian rugs. Lilihan has several different spellings including Lilian, and Lylyan.
Lilihan rugs are Persian and are made in Iran. They are a type of Hamedan rug. To learn more about other types of Hamedan rugs, check out our previous post here.
Persian Lilihans have a Hamedan weave and are single wefted. This means you can see the alternating warp threads (the foundation threads which run up and down the rug making the fringe at each end). Check out the picture below of the back of one of the Lilihans we just got in.
Lilihans typically have curvilinear patterns with traditional floral sprays or geometric designs. They may have a pink or red weft and typically have a cotton foundation. They are similar to Persian Sarouk rugs in design as well as often being washed and painted leaving them with a purple-magenta or pink colored field.
