Object Description

Richly coloured antique Hamadan rug with a warm red border and a deep blue background.  Over 110 years old it has lush wool pile and a 16th century ‘Herati’ or “Mahi” design as the main design.  “Mahi” is short for “Mahi to Hos” meaning “fish in the pond”. This design is a now stylised to a rosette surrounded by two leaves, the name “Mahi” meaning “fish” was given to this design because the leaves resemble swimming fish.  In early carpets sometimes these leaves were closer to looking like fish.

Hamadan is located in the west of Persia and the city was a centre for trading and weaving carpets, hundreds of villages surround Hamadan which produced various designs and qualities of rugs.
