The ground color is a cardinal brick red. Shades will vary based on lighting. One part of the rug is sun-kissed and has a lighter shade of its natural dyes (please see pics). The borders are exquisite and hug the rug so nicely with a beautiful deep indigo blue dyes and contrast. Nothing synthetic here! Old, fine quality wool that was dyed naturally and hand woven. It must have taken a couple years to produce, and undoubtedly, with a few dyers and weavers.
Low pile, with light scattered wear.

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.
