7'7" x 9'11" Antique Persian Heriz


This is a vintage Persian heriz that has a true warm and fuzzy style! The rug features a crimson red ground, ivory side corners that frame the rug, and a beautiful boho border. It also has a beautiful central medallion that cannot be missed. It is medium-full pile and has a little timeworn fade to the vegetable dyed wool that has been earned over the years. It was handwoven circa 1940 and we have it priced at a great value, always extending the very best to our community of rug enthusiasts!

You can really see the intricate details, with geometric and floral design, and amazing medallions and motifs throughout this colorful rug. These pics were taken outside, so the rug will be a bit darker when set inside the home. Colors will vary slightly based on lighting and time of day.

Hand knotted with vegetable dyed wool circa 1940

More about this rug: Heriz rugs are known for their outstanding durability. Coined "the Iron Rug of Iran," Heriz rugs were produced in the Northwest corner of Iran, on and around Mount Sabalan. One reason for the toughness of Heriz carpets is that Mount Sabalan sits on a major deposit of copper. Trace copper in the drinking water of sheep produces the most desired wool for rug weaving because it makes wool that is stronger and more resilient than wool from most other areas. It is said that many Heriz rug designs are woven from memory, with intricate designs passed on through generations of artisans.
