Mehriban is located between the Sarouk and Hamadan regions with a design that reflects a hybrid of the two. The design typically has elongated floral displays with attenuated tendrils that run the length of the rug. The col0rs include rose, tomato reds, sapphire blues and camels and ivory and greens, Similar to Hamadan rugs, they are hand-knotted with single wefts between each row of knots and finely woven as Sarouks with very good wool and dyes and hard wearing as Hamadans,
