Hussainabad rugs are a type of Persian rug woven in the Hamedan region of Iran. They feature bold geometric designs with boteh and Herati patterns. Common colors include red, blue and ivory. They are very similar to Enjilas rugs. Hussainabad rugs usually have cotton foundations and are very durable.
