A genuine, room size, hand-knotted, vintage Persian Mahal rug adds color, warmth, and timeless charm and to complement any decor style.

This rug features a range of glorious colors - reds, blues, ivory, pink, yellow and more. The allover design - without a strong central medallion - is very versatile for modern decor. Bold spandrels (corner elements) add drama to the design.

Weavers near the village of Arak, Iran, diligently hand knotted this rug, c. 1950's or 1960's.

I washed the rug by hand in fall 2023, and carefully stored it since then.

The rug is in fair-to-good vintage condition. The design and colors are vibrant and stunning. It has no rips or holes. A professional tailor repaired one small hole with a hand-stitched patch. The collage photo below shows the repair close-up, but it's otherwise very difficult to find. The wool pile shows wear in some areas of the rug, but the wear adds to the bohemian charm.

-Size: 96x139 inches
-Thickness: 1/4 inch
-Materials: wool pile on cotton foundation
-Age: c. 1950's/60's

Come see the rug if you're in the DC/Baltimore area. Shipping is available throughout the continental USA for an extra $65.

I'm offering a 30 day money-back guarantee if you order with shipping, or a 7 day money-back guarantee if you pick up locally, so you can buy free of worries.
