Woven in East Azerbaijan province of Northern Persia, Heriz is an area famous for richly coloured geometric carpets. This unusual Heriz is woven with a Karaja all over star and latch-hook design in brilliant warm colours. Karaja is a neighbouring village around less than 1 hour from Heriz region. These tribal weavers would travel and see varying designs and implement them into their carpets, which is what makes antique carpets so fascinating!
