The Persian Mahi rug is one of the classic patterns produced by the masterful carpet weavers in Tabriz. Said to originate in the Herat district of Afghanistan, the so-called Herati or Mahi pattern has been attributed to Farahan and other regions too. Regardless of the attribution, few weavers use the Mahi design as skillfully as those in Tabriz. The traditional Persian Mahi rug from Tabriz is precisely woven using the symmetric Turkish knot at a rate of 80 knots per square inch. Most high quality Persian Tabriz Mahi rugs are typically 50 raj or 350-375 kpsi. Tabriz has a long history of master weavers that continues today with artisans like the Pirouzian family who create Persian Mahi rugs using fine Kurk wool with silk accents that add an extra level of beauty to the elegant Mahi design.
