Description

A fabulous antique Heriz carpet from the early 20th Century, dating around 1915-1920 and in sublime original condition.  A high wool pile can be seen throughout this exquisite and vibrant antique carpet from North-West Persia.  Heriz have always been regarded as tough, decorative rugs and this wonderful example is a prime example.  With stunning rich and colourful natural dyes, the pale blues and soft yellows work beautifully with the warm reds and deep indigo dyes.

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.

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.
