Beautifully Classic Persian Heriz Medallion Design Modern Room Size Area Rug, Country Of Origin: Central Asia, Circa Date: Modern Rug – Heriz rugs hail from the mountainous region of East Azerbaijan in northwest Iran. Renowned for their bold geometric designs and vibrant colors, these rugs have captivated rug enthusiasts for centuries. Their production flourished in the 19th and early 20th centuries, establishing Heriz as a major center for Persian rug weaving.

A defining characteristic of the Heriz rug is the central medallion. This large, central ornament represents a variety of symbolic meanings throughout history. Often interpreted as a celestial disc or an all-seeing eye, the medallion could also symbolize protection, eternity, or the center of the universe.

Heriz rugs are not simply adorned with a single medallion. The central motif is typically surrounded by a series of geometric borders, known as ‘farsh’. These borders feature interlocking geometric shapes, such as stars, octagons, and latch hooks. The interplay of these elements creates a sense of balance and harmony, a hallmark of Heriz design.

While traditional Heriz rugs were often quite large, the modern dimensions acknowledges the adaptation of this design for contemporary homes. Modern Heriz rugs are often produced in smaller sizes to better suit modern living spaces.

The bold geometric patterns and rich colors associated with Heriz rugs continue to resonate with modern taste. These rugs add a touch of grandeur and sophistication to any interior, reflecting the artistic heritage of the region. A Heriz medallion rug, whether a classic or contemporary take, serves as a conversation starter, sparking curiosity about the rich cultural traditions it represents.

Our modern Persian Heriz area rug exemplifies the enduring legacy of Heriz rug design. By incorporating this historical element into modern-sized rugs, artisans ensure that the tradition of Heriz rug weaving continues to thrive, adding a touch of timeless elegance to contemporary homes.
