61093 Vintage Persian Heriz Rug, 06'09 x 07'10.

In this hand-knotted wool vintage Persian Heriz rug, the union of perpetual posh and preppy formality unfolds, echoing the enduring legacy of Heriz carpets. Rooted in the historical weaving traditions of the village of Heris, located in the slopes of Mount Sabalan, this rug encapsulates the strength and durability inherent in Heriz rugs, attributed to the high-quality wool produced by sheep drinking from copper-enriched waters.

The distinctive geometric design and refined color palette of this Heriz rug seamlessly blend, creating a modern yet elevated aesthetic reminiscent of American traditional or Ivy League style. The ivory backdrop serves as a canvas for a large-scale concentric diamond medallion, adorned with a superimposed square shape and serrated leaves radiating from the center. This design choice, characterized by rectilinear precision, sets the Heriz rug apart from other formal Persian designs.

The patterns, outlined with meticulous detail, come to life against the abrashed ivory backdrop, giving them a visual depth and strength. Angular buds, curved sickle leaves, stylized florals, and angular oak leaves dance across the rug, creating a captivating visual feast. The red and ivory backdrops enhance the visual impact, as if the patterns are floating on the surface of the carpet.

As your eyes wander, the corner spandrels echo the central medallion, contributing to the rug's overall coherence. The visual complexity, marked by delineated shapes and bold earth-tone colors, creates an esoteric juxtaposition within the geometric design. The Persian rug is framed with a classic Samovar turtle vine scroll border, enclosed by an inner geometric guard border and an outer floral meander guard border, showcasing the meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Reflecting a traditional sensibility and timeless elegance, this vintage Heriz rug transcends mere floor covering; it radiates character and warmth, inviting you to become a part of its storied legacy. Each knot in the wool threads tells a tale of the Old World, making this Persian carpet not just a piece of decor but a cherished piece of history.
