  • A2343 Persian Malayer Antique Rug

    Originating from the weaving villages of Northwest Persia, the Persian Malayer Antique Rug showcases distinct artistry as compared to its nearby Sarouk and Hamadan weaving communities. Individual weavers produced majority of antique runners and area rugs in this region in the 19th and 20th centuries. It’s not surprising that the many of these antique rugs are exclusively small in size. The larger Persian carpets that measure up to around 10ft by 13ft are woven by family weavers in larger villages. It is very rare to see oversize antique carpets – majority is woven on commission.
