Heriz rugs are Persian rugs from
the area of Heris, East Azerbaijan in northwest Iran,
northeast of Tabriz. Such rugs are produced in the
village of the same name in the slopes of Mount Sabalan.
Heriz carpets are extremely durable and hard-wearing and
they can last for generations.
Heriz rug weavers often make them in geometric,
bold patterns with a large medallion dominating the
field. Such designs are traditional and often woven from
Heriz rugs are of coarse construction. The rugs
range from 30 kpsi on the low end to 100–10 kpsi on the
high end. It is rare to see a rug over 100 kpsi that
would look like an authentic Heriz unless it is an
antique silk Heriz.
