More about the provenance Meymeh | Iran

Meymeh is located in Central Iran approx. 100 km North of Isfahan. Meymeh rugs are easily recognizable because they are only rarely being copied by Indian carpet weavers and also due to the fact that there is little variability with designs and colors. Meymeh, Joshaghan and Khosrowabad carpets represent a group of provenances with very similar designs and colors, being differenciated basically by their level of fineness only. The typical pattern consists of little symmetrical stylized orchids surrounding a stylized medallion in the middle of which you will again find a flower cross. The border usually shows a geometrically stylized Mahi/Herati design. This design altogether is called "Jangali" which means "from the jungle", the reason for which being that orchids are a typical flower of the jungle. Meymeh rugs are woven with the Persian knot as opposed to the more widespread Turkish knot.
