Old Hand Knotted Persian Round Rug Mir Seraban Very Unusual Piece. Round Rugs Are Rarely Seen And This Rug Would Be A Stunning Addition To Any Home. Mir rugs originate from the Arak province of Western Persia. They used to be referred to as 'Seraband' (also spelled Saraband) rugs in the 19th and 20th century but for unknown reasons have more recently been called Mir rugs. Mir and Seraband rugs are very popular pieces commercially, as they have relatively standardised designs that are available in a vast variety of sizes. Mir rugs are easy to distinguish from other Persian rugs as the majority feature the same trademark design- an all-over 'Boteh' (known as Paisley in the west) pattern in the foreground, which is framed by a large geometric border. Most weavers have their own variation on this signature style and occasionally may also incorporate a central medallion with corner pieces as seen in the example below, the core design however tends to remain the same.
