From the mid 19th-century onward, Mahal rugs were exclusively made for the European market. All rugs and carpets from this period were exclusively made with pure and natural dyes. Warps, foundation, and wefts are cotton, and the pile is wool. 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. Rugs had designs based on small repeating floral patterns as well as all-over large scale lattice vine patterns. Foreign companies as well as local merchants adopted a similar system, causing Mahal carpets to become carpets of the highest decorative value.

Love the rug pattern and colors but there is a large amount of fiber lose. (more than normal for a new rug) And there is a white powdery substance that can NOT be vacuumed out of the rug. The floor under the rug is constantly white with this ????. When the rug was unpacked the packing was full of this white powder and the entire floor around the unpacking was covered. What is this stuff?Read More
This rug has a pungent odor from the glue or fiber that is unbearable. I have tried airing in the sun and finally threw this one and another one I ordered into the dumpster! Unless you can't smell, don't buy one of these rugs.Read More
