What is a Dergazine Rug?
Dergazine rugs are a type of Persian rug hand woven in the Darjazin village of the Province Hamedan. They are similar in color and design to Lilihans and Sarouks.
Designs in Dergazine Rugs
It is rare to find a Dergazine rug without some type of floral pattern. Designs include repeating patterns, central medallions or detached floral sprays. Common colors include red, white and blue. The Persian Dergazine pictured above has the typical all-over floral spray design set in a red field while the rug pictured below has a slightly different design with a central medallion and stylized floral motifs. The rug pictured below is around 20 years older than the rug pictured above.
Structure of Dergazine Rugs
They are woven with the typical Hamedan weave with single-wefts between rows of knots. The pile is clipped to a medium-short length like most Hamedan rugs.
Dergazine rugs are normally found in scatter and runner sizes, specifically around 2x4. These rugs are popular with designers because of their durable nature. They are typically woven with wool pile on a cotton foundation.
