About

Textured early 20th century Persian Malayer rug with a small-scale all-over herati motif in soft grayish blue and sand tones.

What makes antique Malayer rugs endlessly interesting and popular in the 21st century is their small-scale all-over motifs. The “boteh” or sprouting seed a sign of rebirth and growth in nature) was a favorite motif of the antique rug weavers, sometimes covering the field in room size rugs and runners. The herati motif which is exemplified here is another motif that always has seemed popular over the past two centuries. These patterns can be used in traditional or contemporary design homes.
