Persia constituted the brightest star in the so called ‘Rug Belt’ constellation, stretching from Morocco, across North Africa, the Middle East, and into Central Asia and Northern India. From being simple articles of need, Persian antique rugs with their indisputable beauty attracted new owners – kings and noblemen, who considered them as determinants of status, prestige and taste. The one before your eyes – the antique Heriz carpet – is the essence of weaving artistry. It has survived a century intact thanks to the exceptional craftsmanship of Heriz masters and the best quality wool applied to its making. Its design is genuinely Persian with the central medallion, multiple borders and typical flowery motifs, such as lotus or peony flowers, each bearing a distinct meaning. The wide variety of colors, including rusty red, pale aquamarine, indigo, beige and brown, gives a mesmerizing effect but is not overabundant. On the contrary, the toned hues are selected with taste and composed so to please the eye of the viewer. This antique Persian Heriz rug will cater for the need of the most demanding connoisseurs of timeless elegance.
