I have added these pages to my website to show you one of th popular designs in Tabriz Persian rugs, which is the Heriz design.
In addition to the Mahi and Gombad design, the Heriz pattern is also very well known in Tabriz rugs, even though it is a design that originated outside of Tabriz. The town of Heriz lies to the east of Tabriz in a mountainous region and the rugs that are produced there are classified as tribal rugs. Some years ago, the Heriz design started to appear in Tabriz carpets which given the close proximity was not surprising, but the level of quality in the Tabriz Heriz rugs have really made them much more popular. Whereas before, the Heriz carpets were almost always of a lower quality, the Tabriz rugs have incorporated the design in much more high end pieces and have certainly added to their popularity.
Below are samples of Tabriz Heriz Persian rugs from our current selection.
