Heriz rugs, known for their commanding medallions and distinctive bold patterns, have enjoyed popularity in the West since the 19th century. The red field of this carpet is the traditional shade that local weavers cherish and derive from madder. These rugs can endure decades of heavy use and would get even more beautiful with continued wear.

This piece is truly exceptional and has the potential to become a cherished family heirloom. Typically, the weavers are women from the family and the local community who meticulously tie one knot after another under the watchful guidance of their grandmothers. As a result, the traditional patterns are passed down from one generation to the next. What adds to the allure of such carpets is the subtle interventions made by the weavers, expressing their emotions through small motifs woven between the lines. It is these intricate details that render each rug unique and radiant with charm.
