Mahal Persian carpets from the 19th century and turn of the 20th century have become perhaps the most desirable among Persian village weavings, as they appeal strongly to both connoisseurs and interior designers. These two important groups of buyers are attracted to them as outstanding examples of folk art weaving and for their sophisticated, yet often whimsical, highly decorative aesthetic. As a result, the best Mahal antique carpets have become very difficult to find in the international market.
