Many years of enjoyment to go with this hand knotted and durable rug from circa 1900-1920 antique. It took years to weave and what was left was a unique masterpiece, from a tribe in Heriz that made a super distinct and joyful woven rug. The beauty of this rug is also in its size, as we often get Heriz rugs that are 8x10 and larger. Finding this middle point of size between small and large room size is a gem.
This Northwest mountain tribal rug is in superb condition with beautifully scattered wear, earned through time. We have this heirloom at a phenomenal value compared to brick and mortar pricing. This is an original and fine Oriental (aka hand woven) rug to be loved and treasured.

Fun facts: Heriz rugs are known for their strength & durability. Coined "the Iron Rug of Persia", Heriz rugs were produced in the Northwest corner of Persia, 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.
