  • Description

    The town of Heriz is known as one of the most significant historical places in the Azerbaijan province of Iran. Their carpets have long been famous among collectors because of their soft earth-tone colors and bold geometric patterns. They have their own very unique style that stands out from other traditional rugs at a glance. This particular rug was made in the 1920s by village weavers in Heriz. The process of making a rug includes cleaning, washing and dyeing the wool which is sourced from local villages.

    Herat Oriental works with over 2,000 village weavers to create beautiful, authentic, handmade rugs. The majority of the weavers are women, who live in the villages of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Persia and India. As we grow, we are able to create more jobs for female weavers who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so. The community also thrives from rug weaving as the local farmers benefit from wool sales, and the local artisans create natural and vegetable dyes for the weavers to use in their designs. Due to the handmade nature of our rugs, the size may vary from as advertised by 3-4 inches. Regular vacuuming and annual professional cleaning will keep your rug looking new for years to come.
