Mashhad Rugs

Mashhad/Mashad rugs fit into my "Persian Rugs the O'Connell Guides" section type of rugs of Northeat Iran. These rug are predominantly woven by weavers who speak Persian or Turki and who are Shia Moslems. Mashhad, is the administrative seat of Khorasan Razavi province. Mashhad Rugs / Mashad Rugs are the best known of the Khorasan Rugs. Carpet weaving in Khorasan predates the Pazaryk carpet going back thousands of years. In the late 1550s some of the most perfect rugs ever woven were created in Khorasan. See The Perez Topkapi Prayer Rug which is one group.

The greatest Mashhad workshop of all time was that of Soltan Ibrahim Mirza. More recently Mashad workshops included Amoghli (Amu-oghli, Amoughli, Emoghli), Khamenei, Makhmalbaf, Saber, and Zarbaf.
