More about the provenance Sivas, ca. 1930 | Turkey
Sivas is located in East Anatolia (Turkey). The rugs from Sivas distinguish themselves mainly through their high quality wool and very thorough weaving, which makes the Sivas one of the most valuable Anatolian rugs. CIty and region have developed their own original design creations, e.g. the very accurately drawn carnation flower.
This Sivas, ca. 1930 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.
