Heriz carpets of excellent quality rarely come onto the market these days. This expressive Heriz, with a fine and careful weave, a pile of Maku wool and clear, brilliant colours, stands out distinctly from the mass-produced carpets of the region, which have survived in large numbers. Somewhat reduced ends, minimal repairs, very good condition.
