DESCRIPTION: The Genevieve is a beautiful mahal in muted jewel tones. Though it was originally 19’4” long, it has been professionally shortened to 12’ (and original border reattached) to make this rug into a much more approachable size. The hand-knotted blue field features a classic herati (water garden) design, surrounded by a red and brown border with a classic scroll motif. This is a densely knotted and supple mahal, approximately 1/2 inch in thickness, with a soft underfoot feel. Pattern, color variation, and signs of wear with vintage items is normal. All rugs are washed prior to shipping.
