Older Hamadaan carpets can be very attractive products. In the city itself, Hamadaan, carpets were manufactured with a considerably higher quality. The carpets were called Shaah r-baaff and are similiar in structure to the Bidjaar carpets, but they are rare on the market today. The carpets are manufactured with a ropy, shiny and often natural dyed hand-spun yarn, that provides a very durable surface and beautiful colour scale.
Common for all these carpets is that they are nowadays made on a cotton warp with one weft. The patterns are mostly geometrical, but floral motifs also occur. Materials and design can be of very varying quality. Older carpets (before 1920) are often tied on wool warp, different from todays cotton warp.

The most common sizes are dozar and zaronim (approximately 200x120 cm and 150x100 cm). 2.6'x 6.8'(80cm x 207cm). White, red, brown, orange, pink, green.
