From the mid 19th-century onward, Mahal rugs were exclusively made for the European market. 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.
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.
