More about the provenance Enjelass | Iran
The provenance (zone of production) is Enjelass (initially Turkish tribe which settled in NorthWest Iran). The village of Enjelass is in the SouthEast of Hamadan. Their rugs are famous for best wool quality and therefore being very durable.
This Enjelass has a "Herati" or "Mahi" design (has its origin in Herat, ca. 16th century, short for "Mahi to Hos" meaning "fish in the pond"). A rosette is surrounded by a rhombus which is again surrounded by four bent leaves. The name "Mahi" meaning "fish" was given to this design because the leaves resemble swimming fish.
