Description

A truly breathtaking antique Heriz carpet, really one of the best of its type! Striking vibrant colours, remarkable intricate pattern with detailed leaves, pale blue medallion and gorgeous ivory corners.  A real wow! The natural dyes and fine weave create one of the best Heriz we have seen recently.

Condition is near flawless, a high wool pile, no repairs and dating from circa 1890-1900.  When we purchased this carpet recently it was rather dirty, so it has been thoroughly cleaned by our workshop and now ready for the floor.

Please view all the additional images to see how lovely the colours and intricate pattern has been woven. Accomplished nomadic weavers have created a glorious carpet, woven 100 years ago and looking as good as the day it was cut from the loom.

It is getting increasingly rare to find antique Persian Heriz carpets of this high quality in such original condition.  Ideal for a drawing room, dining room, study or entrance hall, included in the price is our sturdy underlay, helping sit safely and flat on any floor type, enhancing its appearance too.

50 kilometres south of the city of Heriz lies another city called Sharabian.  This city was known for producing much finer and tightly woven Heriz carpets with intricate designs and excellent dyes. Woven in East Azerbaijan (North-West Persia) these decorative Heriz carpets have always been regarded as beautiful, tough objects of decoration for the floor.  This piece is no exception, beautifully hand-woven which gorgeous colours of yellow, pale blues and warm red tones.  In outstanding condition throughout, this carpet has been used over the last 100 years and has just been professionally washed by our workshop.

The reason Heriz rugs are so tough is that Mount Sabalan is located close to Heriz and sits on a major deposit of copper. Traces of copper in the drinking water for the sheep produces high quality wool that is far more resilient than wool from other areas.
