More about the provenance Mahal | Iran

Mahal is located in West Iran, belongs to the carpet region of Arak. Mahal rugs are woven in the stile of Farahan rugs (also called Feraghan). Due to their high quality of wool they are considered to be very reliable and longlasting.

This Mahal 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.
