VINTAGE TABRIZ MAHI AREA RUG
The Persian Mahi rug is one of the classic patterns produced by the masterful carpet weavers in Tabriz. Said to originate in the Herat district of Afghanistan, the so-called Herati or Mahi pattern has been attributed to Farahan and other regions too. Regardless of the attribution, few weavers use the Mahi design as skillfully as those in Tabriz.Tabriz Mahi rugs are often woven in muted earth-tones that downplay the intricacy of the field. Classic color triads, including midnight blue, red, beige, camel brown and burnt sienna paired with soft green accents, are commonly used for weaving Persian Mahi rugs. The traditional color palette and bold allover pattern make the Persian Tabriz Mahi rug a popular choice for living areas and high-traffic spaces.
