More about the provenance Heriz | Iran
Heriz is located in North West Iran in the Persian part of Azerbaijan and it is a very important carpet-center. The fundament of the rugs is made of thick cotton and the pile thread is a double thread made of robust wool. The old Heriz productions as well as the newly made are famous to be highly durable and of tasteful geometric designs. Altogether a classic, high quality and reliable Persian rug.
This Oriental rug has been treated with a "Noble Finish" wash. This wash includes not only the actual cleaning of the carpet but also its processing (ennobling) which represents an increase in the Oriental carpet's value. By this special technique a soft and silky feel and shine are added to the carpet. This washing technique requires experience and skill since otherwise carpets could easily be damaged by it. In this case the washing was implemented perfectly.
