What is an antique Mahal carpet?

The production of Mahal carpets only began in the Arak region during the late nineteenth century. They are characterized by a large-scale curvilinear vine scroll based upon classic Persian forerunners, but rendered in a somewhat more stylized, geometric and robust design.

One of the more recent rugs to enter the market, the Mahal rug is another fine piece of the Oriental carpet family. The Mahal rug stands out as an incredibly bright and descriptive carpet, almost teetering on the subject of art form. A fine addition to any form sporting a unique approach and aesthetic among the many forms of Oriental and Persian rugs.

The patterns were heavily influenced by the Shah Abbas era carpets. These works of art feature an elegant color palette consisting of cream, beige, and ivory seeped in sheep’s wool. Their ivory ground works are known to be some of the most luxurious and hard to find pieces as the entire Mahal collection of antique carpets.

Nomad Looms is proud to provide you with a great selection of handmade antique Mahal carpets coming from Afghanistan, Armenia, Caucasian Mountains, India, Persia, Turkey and more. We carry antique Mahal rugs that come from the late 19th century and 20th century in a variety of colors, sizes, styles and designs.
