More about the provenance Bibikabad | Iran

Bibikabad is located in Iran 45 km North East of Hamadan. Bibikabad-rugs are usually made with relatively thick thread with high quality durable wool. Mostly Herati- (Mahi-) Designs are used for them. Altogether the Bibikabad is a reliable and durable rug which can be used heavily for a long time.

This Bibikabad 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.
