This is a Persian tribal hand knotted rug from Northwest Persia, made with coarse and superior quality wool. It is low pile, with light scattered wear that gives an abundant amount of character to it. This village rug has great appeal with old world charm and wool that was dyed naturally with vegetables. The village of Heriz is located just east of Tabriz. This beauty has rectilinear designs, a departure from the traditional arabesques and scrolls typical of Persian rugs.
Hand knotted circa 1920 with all natural dyes, we have fallen in love with the rich colors that make up this antique, especially the steel and aqua blues that steal our hearts! Look at the beautiful abrash (variation of natural dyes) throughout the rug. It also has a gorgeous and large central medallion that has a powerful presence.
We have this rug listed for a steal if you’ve been looking for these original village rugs!

Fun facts: 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.
