Majestic jewel toned Malayer gallery rug with the highly sought after herati pattern consisting a fish, flora, and small “hidden” animals. We love that Malayers often hide the occasional fox and bird in their designs and this one features endless exploration. The deep blue tone transforms to a subtle blue-green in places. This is known as abrash and it is one of the key characteristics of an authentic handmade rug. This rug is safe for all traffic as it has a sturdy, coarse handle. It would be exquisite in a large foyer or open hallway. It would also be a lovely layering piece.
Vintage rugs are made by hand over the course of months, sometimes years. Their imperfections and wear are evidence of the hard working human hands that made them and the generations of families that used them. Character marks may include repairs, low pile, asymmetry. More often than not, rugs are not perfectly straight. Please see all photos before purchasing. Color may appear different in a dark room or from screen to screen. We do our best to photograph the entire rug from all angles but if you would like additional photos, please do not hesitate to ask. Video may help as well and we are happy to provide. Rugs are washed prior to being photographed.
