Heriz rugs are some of the toughest rugs you will find, the wool used is of a high quality and despite its durability it is surprisingly soft to the touch. The design has the eight-sided geometric medallion in the centre, with floral motifs and charming deep colours. The Heriz region created color palettes solely from natural dyestuffs, as seen in this piece. Colours improve with age, increasing the value of the rug as it gets older. Antique Heriz rugs are treasured and highly sought after by antique-dealers and collectors. The condition of this circa 1940 Heriz is outstanding.
