The Mahi rug originates from the Persian city of Tabriz, known for its fine elegant rugs around the world. The name “Mahi” does not refer to a city like most carpets, rather it is a Farsi nickname for “fish in the pond”. Made of rosettes, framed by a vine scroll, the design is compact and detailed with tiny flowers, usually outlined in silk and the wool is of the finest quality. The weaving style uses a Turkish knot and special ties, which ensure long term strength and longevity. See this beautiful Persian rug in store!
