Story Behind the Art: Produced south of the city of Arak by Armenians in Persia, Lilihan rugs are known for their design. Traditionally designed with a curvilinear lattice with traditional floral motifs, these rugs also feature geometric designs. The Lilihan rugs are woven using the sturdy Hamedan (single weft) weave and using a symmetrical Turkish Knot which makes it tightly flatwoven and extremely durable. With their soft surface, distinctive colors and exceptional craftsmanship, Lilihan rugs are veritable works of art.
