7’1 x 9’6 antique Persian Heriz (#1141)

Regular price $0.01

Floor art? Yes, please!!

This is a 1920s all over pattern, floral-geometric Persian Heriz. We go bananas for this, as it possesses powerful art, is easy to style. Handwoven with vegetable dyed wool, it has lightly scattered wear all over and looks like absolute perfection; your friends will undoubtedly notice it when they come over.

The amazing geometric shapes, medallions and motifs throughout just make you stop and stare. This beauty sits on a madder red ground and the borders of deep indigo blue (can appear nearly black), which frames the rug with contrast superbly.   

At room size, it will definitely make a statement with its design, color ways and aesthetic. You can enjoy it for decades to come and not worry...the dogs, cats and kids can go at it...this rug will handle it and cleans up easy. There is nothing synthetic here! Old, fine quality wool that was dyed naturally and hand knotted. It must have taken a couple years to produce, and undoubtedly, with a few dyers and weavers.

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.
