hand-made rug in the classic Persian Heriz pattern was made in Romania but
reproduces faithfully the turquoise and beige colors of the finest antique rugs
from the Heriz region of Iran.Made
from lustrous wool at a time before Indian and Chinese manufacturers began
turning out their own inferior versions of Iranian rugs, Romanian rugs such as
this were considered to be the top of the line at a time when the U.S. embargo
on Iranian rugs made genuine Heriz carpets off limits to American collectors.
