Heris rug

 
Heris for a long time was well known in Iran and abroad for the long lasting woollen and silk carpets woven in pleasant and agreeable colours. Although the method of weaving these carpets is the same, yet they rarely resemble each other, they are produced in Heris and in thirty nearby villages in medium and big sizes as well as runners. The design of Heris carpets is normally stylised with a very big medallion in the centre that almost covers the field; the corners, too, resemble the centre medallion. The predominant colours are ivory, brownish red, dark and bright pink and blue.

Recently the designs of Hens carpets are copied by Indian and Rumanian weavers, but they are easily distinguished from the original ones as the texture and the colours differ a lot from those woven in Heris. The designs of old Heris carpets differ radically from those of new pieces.

----------------------------------
Heriz

The small town of Heriz is the centre of one of the weaving areas in Azerbaijan, and has given its name to one of the most important Persian provenances. Carpets from the town’s workshops are of better quality than those from the inaccessible mountain villages. ‘The typical Heriz red and a highly individual medallion are the main characteristics of these popular carpets. Old and antique examples, in various blue tones, are occasionally found in the trade and at auctions. Brown, beige and turquoise shades indicate older pieces. Heriz silk carpets are exceptionally finely knotted and are both rare and very beautiful. The designs of old Heriz rugs differ radically from those of new pieces.
Sizes: in general. carpets are made in sizes of 6, 12 and up to 20 sq. m (65, 130, and up to 220 sq. ft.) Other formats arc occasionally available, Colors: mostly the typical dark Heriz red, brown and beige. Blue is used as contrast and contour colors. New pieces tend to be rather inharmoniously colored. Old and antique Heriz carpets are sometimes found in large formats and in wonderful blue and turquoise shades.
Patterns; centre medallions are often richly decorated and have a characteristic, rather rectangular shape. Filler motifs include arabesques, palmettos and rosettes in colorful repeats. Also characteristic are the square or rectangular corners in the field, often decorated with arahesr1ues.
Foundation: warps and wefts are of cotton those of old and antique pieces may also be of silk.
Knots: coarsely woven in the Turkish knot with up to 1,000 knots per sq. dm (65 per sq. in.), Silk carpets are very finely woven,
Pile: good quality wool, clipped high. Silk piles are cut low.
Quality: mostly good to very good. It is worth learning to distinguish the different qualities. Old and antique Heriz carpets belong to the best carpets on the market.


Bakhshaish

the carpets of Bakhshaish, a small village near Heriz, are somewhat similar to the weavings of Heriz in color, format, design and wool quality. Like the latter they are woven with the Turkish knot but the handle is harder, particularly in the older pieces. As colorful, solidly produced, furnishing carpets the quality varies from good to very good.
