This one of a kind antique Persian Malayer rug was hand knotted in Iran over 100 years ago using 100% wool and vegetable dyes. It features a low pile and is in excellent condition. The rug has a more flexible construction, thus a rug pad or anti slip pad is suggested to prevent movement/bunching of the rug. The rug has been professionally cleaned. Spot clean with soap and water as needed, or have the rug cleaned by a professional if necessary in the future.
