HERIZ rugs and carpets are the most famous Persian Rugs among collectors. The majority of HERIZ rugs and carpets have a large, single, eight-sided medallion. I should also mention that you find some tribal patterns that are made in surrounding villages such as Goravan.
The quality of HERIZ rugs and carpets varies. Old antique Heriz carpets called SERAPI are very valuable and there are many buyers all around the world for antique SERAPI.
Size & Shapes:
HERIZ rugs and carpets come in different sizes, but the majority of them are mid-size (4 x 6 to 8 x 10 feet). You can also find large rugs up to 15 x 24 feet.
Light red, brown and sky blue. Blue is used as a contrasting and contour color. Newer carpets tent to be rather inharmoniously colored. Brown, beige, and turquoise shades indicate older pieces.
Soft wool; thin, tight pile.
HERIZ rugs and carpets have cotton warp; weft is either cotton or wool.
Weavers in HERIZ use Turkish knots. The quality of the carpet depends upon the number of knots, which varies, but averages around 120 KPSI (30 RAJ).
HERIZ carpets are the most attractive tribal pattern rug among western collectors. Prepare to pay $8-$24 Per Square Foot (PSF) for new carpets from HERIZ. You will pay much more for antique HERIZ rugs (Serapi).
