Story Behind the Art:
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.

I was sent this rug and it was obviously NOT the rug described on the website. Neither the pattern nor the color was accurate! I was only sent one rug although I ordered 2 and was billed for two. Although, this order was disastrous, Overstock was very accomodating and I was told I would receive a full refund. I am usually very pleased with Overstock. This must have been a fluke.
