This rug hails from Persia, more specifically the Heris village located in northwestern Iran, boasting a classic Heriz design. The design revolves heavily upon tribal style patterns and motifs, unified under a foundation of warm, brick red. The material composition of this rug is that of wool on cotton, presenting a plush and comfortable texture underfoot. The rug is vintage and was made in 1920, making it a century-old artifact that represents the richness of Persian rug-making tradition. With a generous size of 9'1" X 12'9", it presents an ample area to showcase its meticulously knitted patterns and designs.

The design of this rug primarily centers around a large and detailed medallion at its heart. This medallion impacts an almost hypnotic magnetism, capturing the viewer's attention with its intricate geometric floral motifs. There is a symmetrical arrangement in the design, radiating outwards in layers of sophistication with the medallion at the center. Surrounding the medallion are additional geometric floral shapes and delicate vines that strive to add depth to the overall pattern layout.

The rug's background color is dark red, laden with repeating motifs, and interconnected shapes that add to the rug's allure. These shapes juxtaposed against the background create a rich texture throughout the rug. Providing a bordering roundup to the field, there is a broad border that is widely decorated with repeating patterns, enriching the rug's design with complex floral motifs. This border is lined by narrower secondary borders, that aid in the contrast between the inner field and the main border.

When considering the craftsmanship on display, the attention to detail and symmetry suggests the work of a skilful artisan. Every strand of wool and the precision in the design elements speaks of the care and practised hands that worked on the rug. The overall aesthetic of this rug hints at its value and the cultural narrative it binds in its threads.

Heriz rugs, such as this one, are known for a firm and dense pile that equates to their durability. This rug is another testament to the toughness that Heriz rugs are associated with and the high-quality wool used in its making. This rug ties together tribal influences with Persian court rugs, creating an exquisite piece that stands out from other Persian rugs.
