Vintage Wool Pre-Owned Rugs Persian Lilihan 80 x 135 cm
Lilihan Persian rugs were woven in the village of Lilihan situated in the south of Arak province in Iran by Persian Armenians. These antiques may have surfaced even before the 16th century, but they weren’t visible to the Western market until the Shah Abbas period where they were introduced to the foreign markets. Becoming exposed to the larger world aided weavers in obtaining both a reliable source of income and proper veneration for their craft. The materials used in the Lilihan rugs are commonly cotton or wool. The wrap is always made of cotton giving it a smooth foundation whilst the weft can alternate between cotton and wool. The wools used were high-quality course wool, giving the rug a genuine plush feel. These antique Lilihan rugs are quite thick and heavy paired with a durable texture. The design gives off a one of a kind aesthetic appeal. They have a smooth and plush finishing across their top side. The most common color used in the Lilihan rug is a pink-rose foundation; however, sometimes red and brown can also be found among them. The designs in these rugs are made with different color threads to highlight the patterns used. A variety of colors can be seen, including yellow, gold, ivory, and sometimes even blue or other traditional colors. The designs visible in these carpets are densely worked geometric patterns and traditional floral designs. The pink in the weft defines these designs and creates a distinct visual appearance.0 Lilihan rugs are constructed with a single weft, keeping the them quite simple yet sophisticated. They were hand knotted and flat woven with a Hamadan weave that possesses asymmetrical knots of Turkish inheritance. The knot count can vary from a hundred to fifty knots per square inch. As always, the higher the knot count per square inch goes up, the higher the quality of the rug.
