This 1920s tribal Persian comes from the mountains in Northwest Persia. It’s a Heriz and this baby is in charge. If you have been looking at similar tribal rugs for a while you can see how distinct this Heriz is. The artisans went for bold and beautiful with this piece, and that’s not all...the size is also distinct. Majority of these Persians are found in larger size.
This beautiful antique rug has great presence and strength, and everyone visiting will feel it. Hand knotted in Persia, this low pile Heriz is hand woven with vegetable dyed wool and you will not find another like it. It has scattered wear and character all around.
Fun facts: Heriz rugs are known for their strength & 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.
