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.

All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. Overstock.com tries to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.
Please keep in mind that new wool rugs may initially shed and have a natural capacity to shed for several months after purchase. This is normal due to the nature of construction of most wool rugs and not a defect. Click here to view our Wool Rug Care Guide.
