Based on the ancient techniques of the finest Persian weavers, these pieces emulate the antique style and designs of Mahal rugs. Woven in Armenia using an offset knotting process and the finest wool available, these pieces will last a lifetime. Mixed by hand, the all natural and vegetable dyes give each of these pieces a uniquely antique look. Because of this, over time the colors in these rugs often become more vibrant as a result of reaction to sunlight and air. These patterns have existed for hundreds of years and never go out of style. Some say these rugs have a museum quality that fits perfectly in library or dining room settings. The wool is supple, yet stable and cleans beautifully for years to come.
