From the mid 19th-century onward, Mahal rugs were exclusively made for the European market. They often favored bold floral designs with spacious patterns. Rugs from this period were exclusively made with pure, natural dyes. Dark red, blue, soft green, gold, and ivory are the typical colors. 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. Using wide and bold borders, Mahal 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. Mahals have great value in any condition.
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 am an artist and have extensive training in color theory so I am picky about colors. I am very disappointing that the rug's colors do not match the colors in the photo. To take the photo, the photographer must have use very bright yellow light that gives the rug a warmth it really does not have. Instead of a bright, light cherry red, the dominate color is more of a light mauve tone. Although it looks pleasant with the sage green of the border, the all-over effect is one of a cooler and duller tone. I have art work with vibrant reds so it was disappointing there will not be a match. However, the rug is of a much better quality than I was expecting. The feel under foot is nice. I was expecting some sort of acrylic-wool blend. The feel is definately of wool. For the price, I will keep it and give thanks that, although the color is not my favorite, it is a well made rug.Read More
No complaints here. Very plush and nice to walk on. The color is sort of off but that's to be expected when you're order online and need to deal with color variations of monitors. If you need a very precise match, then you're probably better off going to a rug showroom. We had more flexibility with color tones so we were happy to take our chances. Turned out to be a lovely addition to the room.Read More
The color was a deep red/redbrick, which was what i wanted and expected. i needed a low budget option due to my pet and this did fit the bill but it will not be mistaken for a high end rug. For the price, its not a bad option.Read More
This rug is perfect. It is a perfect match to our pricier wool rugs, but doesn't pill like they do. Color is more rusty than a true red.Read More
Love the rug. Wish it came larger because it's not large enough for the room I wanted it for, but I knew that was a possibility and I can use it in one of two other rooms. So I'm very happy with it. Now I need a larger one! It is a great price for the rug and my husband and I really like it.Read More
We purchased this rug for our family room and were very pleased with the brick red color that blends well with our furniture and fireplace place wall. The details are accurate to the picture making it very design friendly for a variety of styles. It was also a plus to find this rug listed in the fair trade section.Read More
The colors are like jewels. Unfortunately, they do not go well with my room because the red is really a bright cherry red. If it had been more rust (as the rug label says), it would have been fine.Read More
