The main element of this carpet design is the Botteh pattern, and in its smaller version: Mir design, in the West known as Paisley design. The Botteh motif is depicted in the shape of a teardrop and represents fertility and eternal life. It is often found in carpets from Kerman in Iran, India, and antique Caucasian rugs. The word Botteh comes from the Persian word for bush.
