  • Notes:
  • Amongst the most classic and popular patterns in Tabriz rugs is the Mahi design, which is also known as the Fish design. The Tabriz Mahi rugs are very common and are typically found in most Persian rug stores. In fact, this design is so popular that it is also very common to find it in imitation rugs from China and India. Most Mahi pieces are standard sized Tabriz rugs with a large center medallion and the main colors are typically beige, navy blue, and 3 shades of red, which are burgundy, cherry, and rose. While the exact origins of the Mahi design may be somewhat unsettled, what is fairly widely accepted is that the Farsi-speaking region of Western Iran and the country of Turkey represent the locations where this particular style of rug-making does in fact have its most definitive roots. Perhaps a bit of a slightly stronger case can be made for Iran, given that the city of Herat, which was initially located in Persia but now resides within Afghanistan’s borders, provided obvious eponymous inspiration for the naming of the very design itself. Regardless of any quibbles concerning direct national or cultural lineage, this general area’s role in and contribution to the development and popularization of the Mahi pattern is laudable and, again, undisputed.
