Mahal rugs are produced in the town of Mahallat, located in the Arak (Markazi) Province of west central Iran. The rug weaving industry in the region can be traced back for centuries. Due to the location of Mahallat, the area rugs have a Kurdish influence as well as a Turkish influence. The fact that Mahal rugs feature both tribal and curvilinear designs can be directly attributed to the fact that Mahallat is located between the cities of Arak and Delijan. Skilled artisans may use either the Turkish or Persian knot, depending on the particular styles of area rugs that they are weaving.
