-Malayer is a large weaving village in NW Persia, between Sarouk and Hamadan. Tribal variations are small rugs. Large Malayer rugs, especially those without a central medallion are rare. One of my favorite features of Malayer rugs is that they can often be used on the reverse. This rug is an excellent example. The pattern is the same but the colors are even brighter and quite striking. Like most oversized Oriental rugs, this rug was likely commissioned by a European buyer during the first quarter of the 20th century.
Wear notes: none
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.
