For Golran, India Mahdavi designed a collection distinguished by a pattern of smooth leaves. Gradually overlapping toward the centre, they seem swept up by the wind, carried by a gust travelling over the centuries-old tradition of Persian carpets.
The first “garden” is more classic, having a rectangular format, a generously framed central decoration, and zigzag edges to replace the fringes. The second is created by removing the central pattern from the initial design, to reveal a wild garden. The extraction of this piece creates a freer, all-over pattern, resulting in an irregularly shaped rug suited to the furnishing of less conventional spaces. By breaking out of the confines of shape and adding movement, India Mahdavi offers a new interpretation of carpets inspired by Eastern gardens.

Paris-based architect and designer : India Mahdavi’s name is a reflection of the designer herself: exotic, feminine, dramatic. It’s a name that evokes a chic, global sensibility and one that completely captures the essence of her designs.
Established in Milan in 1968, the nomadic story of this brand started in 1898 in Mashad, Persia, with the trading and manufacturing of carpets that Eliahu, Elia, Nathan, and Benjamin inherited from their great grandfather Hajizadeh Golran, handed down by their fathers, Nemat and Ruben.
