More about the provenance Senneh | Iran
Senneh (also: Sanandadj) belongs to the Western Iranian province of Kurdistan.
This Senneh 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.
