Central Persia, Mahallat, circa 1900s

Mahals are renowned for their exceptional craftsmanship, exquisite designs, and unrivaled quality, making them coveted treasures among collectors and esteemed choices for discerning interior designers. This gracefully-aged Mahal exemplifies these characteristics with its opulent, intricate patterns. Its enchanting vines, oversized flowers, and meticulously placed motifs form a mesmerizing all-over design, complemented by an exquisite ornate border. The rich palette, encompassing deep reds, vibrant jade blues, creamy beiges, and delicate olive greens, creates a captivating and evocative ambiance. As a testament to its timeless beauty and unparalleled craftsmanship, this Mahal showcases a low wool pile delicately woven on a foundation of luxurious drapery cotton.


This rug was carefully curated with a focus on colors, motifs and weave quality that reflect the generations of artistry and history of where it comes from. It is an original rug produced by the people living in the region at that time. As such, it also reflects the wear and care by the generations of families that owned it and passed it down to each other as an heirloom. Signs of natural wear, repairs and asymmetry are only evidence that this rug has been around the block and proudly shows it. The rug’s unique imperfections along with a perfect amount of patina simply prove that this Mahal was built to last.
