Malayer is a large village located between the major weaving areas of Hamadan and Sarouk in Northwest Persia. In Malayer and the small villages surrounding it, production was almost exclusively small antique rugs and runners made by individual weavers in the 19th and early 20th centuries. An extremely limited number of larger Persian carpets up to 10ft by 13ft were woven on the family level in some of the larger villages. Oversize antique carpets are seen very rarely and were woven on commission.
This richness of motifs makes antique Malayer rugs endlessly interesting. 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 small rugs and runners. Stylized birds were another beloved design, adding a whimsical touch. Flower head and vinery lattice Persian carpet patterns and the well-known Herati design (diamonds flanked by flower heads and leaves) were all employed by the tribal rug weavers. Inspiration also came from the sophisticated carpets of the Ferahan plain to the East. What makes this Malayer piece unique is the design and the human hand holding flowers which I have never seen on any other Malayer piece. Please see photos front and the back of the rug.
