Fine Persian Heriz Rug – SquareRug #772
Persian Heriz Square Rug Medallion design Wool Pile
Persian Heriz square rug. This piece was handwoven in Iran.
Heriz carpets are highly distinctive, due to their unique and distinguishable style of design. Heriz is a city located in North West Persia, near the city of Tabriz, which is one of the most historically important rug weaving centres in Persia with a weaving tradition dating back to the 16th Century. Most often, Heriz rugs have oversized geometric medallions that are crisply delineated against a rich red, rust or dark blue field, and sometimes ivory back grounds are seen. The pattern is almost always geometric, although some Heriz rugs have an all-over layout often with geometric floral motives combined with curvilinear floral forms. The classification of Heriz origin is applied to describe neighbouring town and village carpets following Heriz tradition. Since the Heriz ‘region’, is not too far from the Caucasus, many Heriz carpets display similar colours and motif drawings to traditional tribal Caucasian rugs. The most common supporting colours are brownish red, light and dark pink, light and dark blue, greens, yellows and ivory. Blue and ivory are normally added to increase contrast. Heriz carpets are sometimes described as Serapi, which is the trade name given to technically finer quality Heriz carpets, thought to have been woven before 1900. The name Serapi originates from the village of Serab. It is also located in North West Persia and carpet designs made there are varied with an accent on traditional Caucasian and North West Persian Kurdish iconography.
