Farahan (also spelt Feraghan or Ferahan) is the name of an area of plains north of Arak in western Iran. Finely woven nineteeenth century rugs of this area have allover patterns such as the Herati. Most Farahan rugs have a knot density between 60 and 160 knots per sqare inch. Typically, these rugs have a cotton foundation with pink or blue wefts. They are vegetable dyed and the colour green is more prevalent than in most persian rugs.
