Mahi Tabriz Rugs
Persian Tabriz rugs use the symmetrical Turkish knot as opposed to the Persian asymmetrical knot. ‘Mahi’ means ‘Fish’ in translation. It refers to the device that appears commonly in the herati pattern which is thought to of originated in the Herat area of Afghanistan. The Mahi symbol resembles a curled leaf which surrounds a central rosette and is a very common design throughout Persian carpets. The curled leaf is thought to also resemble a fish, hence the name. The design can appear in borders and the main field of rugs. Master weavers in Tabriz produce rugs using very fine cork wool which gives them a distinct feel. Silk detailing is very commonly used and can give the rugs a sparkle as the fibres catch the light.
As with all hand knotted and machine made rugs, cleaning should never be attempted in the home using detergent based solutions which could compromise the dyes. Professional cleaning would be recommended to prolong the life and maintain the appearance of these wonderful pieces of floor art.
If you have a machine made rug that would benefit from a spa treatment, then why not give us a call on 01276 423 150 to get a quote and advice.
