CU-1524-A11 - Antique Persian Mahal Rug
9ft 02in X 12ft 08in
Mahal means many things in the rug world. The antique Persian carpets from the British firm of Ziegler with large scale allover patterns in the most desirable soft color’s: rust, ivory, light blue, light green, are Mahal’s. So are the repeating pattern rugs of the 1920’s-30’s with red fields and moderate weaves. The rugs termed Sultanabad’s are Mahal’s. With this chameleon character, there is a Mahal for any space, any décor, and any price point. Mahal’s come from the Mahalat area of western Persia and are almost always in room sizes. Colors: brick/blue-gray/green/ivory/gold.
Vacuum your rug frequently and use a vacuum which uses suction and does not have bristles. If possible, set vacuum to low power setting and vacuum the rug up and down and do not use a back-and-forth motion.
If possible, rotate the rug every few years to allow foot traffic to be spread evenly and shade the rug from direct sunlight to avoid fading in areas.
A rug pad is recommended on all surfaces to prevent slipping and stop marking if on floors with grooves or lines. Professional cleaning is recommended every two or three years.
