This collection often features an ancient motif, the “Boteh”, a pear-shaped design whose origin is shrouded in mystery. Mirs are characterized by a rich, luscious pile and exceptional depth of colors. Another unique feature is a wide border that frames the vivid “ground” and makes these carpets so arresting in any room setting.
Azhar carries a remarkable range of these fine rugs, ranging in size from small mats right up to large oversize carpets, including runners, squares and rounds. Many specimens have found their way into museums such as London’s Victoria and Albert, and into fine homes throughout the world.
