More about the provenance Bakhshayesh | Iran

Bakhshayesh is located in North West Persia in the province of Azerbaijan approx. 30 km North of the city of Heriz.The Bakhshayesh rug belongs to the family of Heriz rugs. The relatively high pile made of high quality wool, the fresh colors and the robust making of the Heriz make it a high quality robust and tasteful Oriental rug.

This is an Oriental nomadic rug. The word "nomad" comes from the Greek word "nemein". Nomads are wandering tribes, shepherds, stockbreeders, or hunters. In the minorly populated areas of Asia and North Africa they move with their herds, all their belongings and their tents to new places constantly. Many states already tried to make them settle down with various success. Mostly it is the women of the tribes which contribute to the family's income with their carpet knotting and weaving while the men breed stock or go hunting. But due to the circumstances of nomadic life the carpet production often lacks regularity and precision in form and design, which actually adds to their originality and makes them even more popular. The wool is mostly dyed with vegetable dyes.

This Bakhshayesh has a "Herati" or "Mahi" design (has its origin in Herat, ca. 16th century, short for "Mahi to Hos" meaning "fish in the pond"). A rosette is surrounded by a rhombus which is again surrounded by four bent leaves. The name "Mahi" meaning "fish" was given to this design because the leaves resemble swimming fish.
