Description

This 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.
