The region of Heriz has always produced rugs that have not only stood the test of time, but have remained in demand for their amazing aesthetic appeal to collectors for many generations. These gorgeous Persian rugs from the rugged mountains of Northwest Persia have traits that make them distinct, such as their powerful geometric motifs and durable wool.
This bold and beautiful antique 1920s Persian Heriz rug is like gazing out at fireworks as they burst into fabulous colors against the night sky. A dainty medallion centers the rug, while blossom laden vines meander around bold geometric botanical themed motifs in coral, French blue, and dark camel popping against the moody navy blue ground. The main border continues the playful botanical themed motifs in sky blue and sage green against a lovely dark sangria red with abrash that leans into a rusty red tying it all together wonderfully.
The natural vegetable dyes in this handwoven beauty are bold and brilliant. It has a low wool pile. This old rug’s width is 8’4 but it is slightly less wide toward the top with a slightly skinner width of 8’0. This is a good indication to someone who is seeking an antique rug to note because it says, “I am handmade and I’m old”. This stellar Persian is super duper clean and is an absolute tribal treasure that will dazzle the eyes and be the focal point in any space.
