More about the provenance Hosseinabad | Iran
Hosseinabad is located in North West Iran. Hosseinabad rugs belong to the family of Hamadan rugs. They are not made in Hosseinabad though but mostly in neighbouring Tuyserkan. Hosseinabad rugs are very popular because of their good long lasting materials and their tasteful mostly geometric design.
This Hosseinabad 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.
