Mahi Hand Knotted Area Rugs

TheĀ Mahi, from the city of Tabriz, is one of the most elegant carpets in the world. It shows very small silk-lined fish, almost a paisley pattern, scattered neatly throughout the many borders and medallions of the carpet. The tiny flowers and border details are also outlined in silk, and the wool is usually of the finest 'Kurk'. The magic of a Mahi, especially in the higher KPSI, is in the subtle color ranges of each piece, from beiges to brown, black or navy to grey, and every shade of green. This incredible symphony of color in each carpet allows it to blend easily into the the most challenging interior, giving the Mahi its nickname of 'the Designer's carpet'. They do not show their true beauty on the internet, perhaps due to the extremely small scale of the design.
