Fabulous old hand knotted Persian runner from Heriz. This is a stunning example featuring superb colours and design.
Heriz rugs are Persian rugs from the area of Heris, East Azerbaijan in northwest Iran. These beautiful rugs are produced in the village of the same name in the slopes of Mount Sabalan. Heriz carpets are durable and hard-wearing lasting for generations.
Their durability comes from the fact that Mount Sabalan sits on a major deposit of copper. Traces of copper in the drinking water of sheep produces high quality wool that is far more resilient than wool from other areas. Heriz rug weavers often make them in geometric, bold patterns with a large medallion dominating the field. Such designs are traditional and often woven from memory.
