Name: MAGNIFICENT Antique Persian Heriz with RARE MINA KHANI Design | Glowing Pink, Bakshayesh Blue, Camel, GREEN
Size: 8.7 x 12.5
Age: Antique; C. 1920's
Pile: Low/Medium with sensational age-related patina. This piece is in MINT condition as it was restored by expert weavers with all the binding and fringe ends completely. This piece now looks untouched and perfectly original!
About: BEYOND Unique in size, colors, weave, condition, and design - this piece is a SHOWSTOPPER. Glowing pinks surrounded by Bakshaeysh Ice blue, Spring Greens, and primitive camel hair. This is a true masterclass where the weavers of the northwest have taken a HUGE departure from weaving the iconic pattern from this region - they have taken on the all-over palmette & connecting vine design, called Varamin or Mina-Khani. It is one of the oldest designs which could only mean that this piece was woven by the fingers of old souls! These women were not only talented, but the master dyers involved in getting this lanolin-rich wool to soak up this infinitely beautiful dye is what makes the quality of this piece so good. Nice floppy handle, yet with nice wool pile and body as Antique Heriz is known for. This is an extremely decorative piece perfect with any leather, wood, metal etc. This piece will make your space SING, trust me - you will love, love, love it.
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one available.
Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces, irregularities and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.

We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.
A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
