About Enjilas / Ingeles Rugs: Enjilas rugs are woven in the village of the same name near to the ancient city of Hamadan in Iran. Enjilas weaves tight rugs with excellent quality wool that feels rather silky to the touch. Like Hamadan rugs, Enjilas rugs are single-wefted in construction. The pile is typically clipped short. Enjilas rugs are often woven using a Herati pattern in an allover manner throughout the field. Sometimes medallions are used and the most common field color is a dark blue. These rugs are regarded as some of the best in the Hamadan area.
Condition: This Enjilas rug is in good condition. The wool pile is clipped short to medium with fairly even pile. The fringe is short and showing signs of age and wear. The selvedge along the sides of the rug has good overcasting along it. This is a great piece of Iranian art to get a lot of enjoyment out of.
