Tucked into Northwest Persian between the major weaving centers of Sarouk and Hamadan lies Malayer village. The production in Malayer and the surround smaller villages included smaller sized rugs and runners. An oversized area rug originating from Malayer was rare and typically crafted on commission rather than regularly woven for trade. It is argued that some of the most decorative Sarouks originate in Malayer.
The boteh (or sprouting seed) Is a popular motif used in the Malayer rug design symbolic of rebirth or natural growth. Birds, vine lattice and the Herati were also featured in the designs as a nod to other Sarouk inspired motifs. Symmetrical knotting was used with a shorter wool pile to further accentuate details and intricacies of the elaborate design work. This particular Malayer beautifully displays the curvilinear form on a neutral backdrop. The minimal color usage in a neutral tone further enhances the identifiable Malayer style.
