Description
Woven by Aremenians in the Lilian (or Lilihan) village in the Khomeyn (formerly Kamareh) district in Iran, the longer pile appealed to American collectors and thusly this rug is more commonly referred to as the Lilian in the United States, rather than in European countries. Created using the single-wefted Hamadan weave, these rugs are coarsely woven, but tight, making them very durable.

One of the more distinctive features of a Lilian rug is the pink-rose weft foundation, which often shows through in the design. In the 19th century, these rugs were in high-demand, particularly by New York collectors, for their ornate designs and thick, plush pile. Lilian rugs display classical Persian floral motifs, often with detached floral sprays. These rugs are often mistaken for Sarouks in design, but the single weft and plush, coarse structure are unique to Lilians.
