Let's explore the world of an antique 1920s Persian rug from the village of Malayer, part of the larger Hamadan district. Handwoven from vegetable dyed wool, this fantastic rug beautifully showcases the skilled craftsmanship of its era, with a delightful blend of colors and patterns.
Visualize an intriguing color narrative, with four diamond medallions taking center stage, alternating between rose red and Aegean blue, set against a deep charcoal background reminiscent of a starry night.

Tribal motifs, including serrated leaves along the main band, are scattered throughout the design. Despite its antique charm and some signs of wear, this low pile rug remains remarkably sturdy, attesting to its enduring quality.
