The mina khani design is a repeating field pattern not uncommon to find in a wide variety of oriental rugs. The isolated design (seen left) generally features a main palmette surrounded by a circular vine, and eight alternating-colored stylized flowers. While the isolated repeating pattern is square, the overall impression appeals to what would be classified as a "lattice" design. Flowers used often resemble a top view of a pomegranite.
Rugs which sometimes feature the Mina Khani design are as follows: Tehran, Veramin (varamin), Luri (Lori), Belouch, tabriz, and many others.
