    Product Features:
    • Rug design comes from the Iranian city of Mahal
    • Weavers of Mahal design use the asymmetrical or Persian knot on rug
    • Natural dyes are used to give the rugs rich colors
    • Mahal has been hand-knotted in India and it is virtually identical in design, workmanship and authenticity as the originals
    • Black, gold, ivory, rust, peach and blue colors
    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.

  • Indo Tufted Mahal rug

    The rug surprised me as it was so much better than we thought it would me. I would recommend it to anyone debating whether or not to purchase it.

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • Excellent Quality at Unbelivably Low Price

    I am amazed at how inexpensive this beautiful rug was because the quality is right up there. It is very pretty. It arrived in excellent condition, laid flat upon unrolling it, and continues to look elegant. It has not curved up on edges like some do. It feels good under the feet. I keep waiting for it to suddenly fall apart or something because, really, it was very affordable. Thank you Overstock and thank you to the hardworking artists who weave these rugs.

  • Area Rug

    I have only had this rug a month, but I think it is great. I have a modern looking house and furnishings so a more traditional rug really pulls things together. It is a wool/cotton blend, and it sheds a bit, but that is just part of having natural fiber rugs, and I am sure it will stop in time.
