More about the provenance Malayer | Iran

Malayer is located about 80 km South of Hamadan. However, Malayer rugs resemble Farahan rugs more than Hamadans. Farahan (Feraghan) is approx. 100 km South-West of Malayer. Though Malayers are fuller and higher in their pile than Farahans.

This Malayer 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.
