Hi, Does this rug have a backing? Or is the design visible in the weave on the back? A reviewer said this was not a knotted rug at all.
I was not happy when I saw the color was a deep Rust color and not red. I almost sent it back. I have had the rug for almost a year now and use it under a small dining table. The qaulityis nice but beware of the color if you decide to purchase this rug...

Since the middle of the 19th Century, Mahal rugs were exclusively made for the European market. They often favored the bold, floral designs with spacious patterns. The wool of the Mahal rugs is hand spun, usually from the weaver's own sheep. The rugs are woven using asymmetrical Turkish knots to tie each loop one by one. Designs are based on small, repeating floral patterns as well as all-over, large-scale, lattice vine patterns. Today, Mahal rugs have the highest decorative value to interior designers and the discriminating collector.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

For a rug it is okay but would of liked it better if the color was anything like pictured.It sheds just like any wool rug so am not surprised about that. Still is a good buy.Read More
This carpet was a steal! The colors match the photo, although the colors in the description are a little misleading. I would use the colors, rust, gold, olive, taupe,and black on a bone field to describe. After three weeks still experiencing some shedding, but very soft and expensive looking.Read More
I just bought this for my parent's living room. The colors pop against the dark colored hardwood, and complemented the gold and burgundy color scheme of the room. It is plush and soft, and all three dogs immediately layed down on it together. I think it's their new favorite spot.Read More
I purchase this rug, because it advertised as hand-knotted, but when it came, on a back of the rug there was a sticker: hand-tufted. It is a different technique with a lower quality. I am kind of disappointed and thinking about return this rug. What would you recommend?Read More
Very nice rug at unbelievably low price. Colors are subdued and almost exactly as they appeared on my screen. Good quality, thick, classic design.Read More
Questions & Answers
Hello persianforever, It is hand-tufted not hand-knotted so this rug does have a backing. Sorry about the confusion. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us!
The design is not visible from the back. It has a nice jute fabric backing.
