Story Behind the Art
Herati Rugs are quite popular among various Persian rugs. They do not belong to a specific area, as a Tabriz or a Heriz rug do their namesake city. They instead refer to a group of designs and patterns that is iconic and classic and used across all major Persian rug types such as Isfahan, Tabriz, Feraghan and others. The term ‘Herati’ is often used interchangeably with ‘Mahi’ or fish. The term “Mahi” denotes an elegant motif known as fish in the pond. The Mahi design is made up of rosette, enclosed in a diamond with a serrated "acanthus leaf" along each side, that often resemble jumping fish with polychromatic stripes, eyes and life-like features. The four-way symmetry of the Mahi motif allows it to be combine seamless in a kaleidoscopic allover pattern or isolated and used on its own.
Cosmopolitan and sophisticated in look, the rug features an all-over pattern of repeated herati-mahi motifs in a delightful color palette. The main field comprising highly stylized floral and botanical elements is encompassed by a handsome multi-band border with samovar pattern in the main border. The design of the border compliments the inner field and adds gentle grandeur to the artful composition of the rug. This rug representing an illustrious legacy of exquisite artistry and intricate craftsmanship is primed to add visual glamor and class to its surroundings. Its soft texture and timeless design make it ideal to enhance any space where it is placed.
