Description & Technical information

There is not much literature about silk Heriz rugs.
Heriz is a small village at about 200km from Tabriz (NW Persia) and produces excellent carpets for daily use. It is hard to believe, when one visits the area that in the mid-nineteenth century these exceptionally fine silk rugs were produced in such small hamlets.

The quality, the dyes, the technical characteristics and the knot density are very typical for the whole production.
