Beautiful Rustic Antique Tribal Ivory Cream Color Persian Heriz Rug 71968
Rustically Beautiful Tribal Antique Persian Heriz Rug , Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1920 – The antique Persian Heriz rugs are some of the more iconic when it comes to the world of beautiful antique Persian rugs. These antique rugs were woven in the northwest Persian area and tend to feature more geometric and tribal design motifs. The antique Persian Heriz, Serapi and Bakshaish rugs, all come form the same general area and all have won a special place in the hearts of home decorates and private consumers from all four corners of the globe. These beautiful rugs are also sought after for higher traffic areas as they tend to be some of the more durable rugs ever woven.
At approximately 100 years old, this antique Persian Heriz rug is in excellent condition, and was made to last for many more generations. Contrary to other types of area rugs made in other areas of Persia, the tribal rugs from Heriz are made with the symmetric Turkish or Ghiordes knot. This knot is attached to a specially woven foundation that includes a thick – usually – cotton warp and weft, increasing its durability.
These rustic rugs, especially the lighter colored all over patterned ones, like this example, are amazingly versatile in look and feel. As one explored this exciting example, you will notice that some of the pattern has faded into the light ivory cream rug colored background. This allowed the more richly colored deigns to pop against the light background giving them a feel as though they are just floating independently atop the main field.
The border is a classic design that we see in many of the Persian Heriz, Serapi, Bakshaish and even Tabriz rugs. It plays off the colors in the field creating a feel that is both cohesive as well as complete. Area rugs like this will not fight or compete for attention making them ideal rugs for placing in a wide range of rooms and home decorating approaches. That is why rugs like this are great for people who are buying area rugs for their home but like to make updates and changes more frequently.
