A Persian Heriz with an enviable colour palette of sepia rose, grey beige, light brown and accents of faience blue. The rug has a large medallion of traditional Heriz design and delicate motifs representing a Persian flower garden
Heriz is a village on the slopes of snow-capped Mount Sabalan in northwestern Iran. Heriz rugs remain the most popular of all northwestern Persian rugs and are regarded as exceptionally durable. Part of the reason for this is because Mount Sabalan sits on a major deposit of copper. The drinking water contains traces of copper which is consumed by the sheep, resulting in wool of unmatched strength.
This rug is in excellent condition with even wear consistent with age and low pile.
