  • Description

    The design of this rug originates from the Iranian city of Mahal. This particular rug was made in the 1920s by the village weavers in Mahal, who were known to use the asymmetrical or Persian knot, giving their rugs exceptional softness and flexibility. Natural vegetable dyes are used to give the rugs their rich colors.

    Herat Oriental works with over 2,000 village weavers to create beautiful, authentic, handmade rugs. The majority of the weavers are women, who live in the villages of Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. As we grow, we are able to create more jobs for female weavers who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so. The community also thrives from rug weaving as the local farmers benefit from wool sales, and the local artisans create natural and vegetable dyes for the weavers to use in their designs. Due to the handmade nature of our rugs, the size may vary from as advertised by 3-4 inches. Regular vacuuming and annual professional cleaning will keep your rug looking new for years to come.
