Heriz rugs and carpets were woven in Northwest Persia starting in the mid 19th century in response to a great increase in demand for rugs internationally. Prior to that, there were not rugs woven (in Persia) for export that exhibited this stylized drawing of plant and flower forms. The lower knot density and thicker pile became the standard for these rugs, which lent to a less formal aesthetic which remains popular to this day. The use of natural dyes in the Heriz workshops prevailed well into the 20th century, setting them apart from city workshops, which began to embrace synthetic dyes as early as the turn of the century. What was once one of the least expensive rugs is now highly sought after for just these qualities. This is a rare example of an attempt at a standard rug design with some wonderful surprises. The weavers employed a camel wool warp for the foundation , and elaborate flat woven end finishes more often seen on nomadic rugs.
