Gorgeous sky blue antique Heriz carpet from the late 19th century, with rustic charm and scattered tribal motifs seen often in Bakshaish carpets and early examples. We love the change in dye in the pale sky blues, this is known as Abrash and gives the carpet such character. A brick red/brownish border with large leaves and stylised flowers well proportioned. Some wonderful pinks and green dyes used for the detailing too.
Heriz carpets have always been regarded as beautiful, tough objects of decoration, made in the north-west of Persia these handwoven works of art always have variations from one piece to another. Some draw influences from further north into the Caucasus and vivid colours like this particular carpet. This Heriz carpet is a decorative yet practical carpet which has been used for over 100 years and stood the test of time.
