Heriz rugs stand out due to their geometric shapes. As a trademark, they have a large, eight-sided medallion.
Typically the color palette is salmon, burnt sienna, and sky blue for modern day pieces. Antique Persian rugs have a darker tinge of burnt sienna, beige, and turquoise.
A majority of Heriz carpets are mid-size (4 x 6 to 8 x 10 feet.) A large rug can run up to 15 x 24 feet as a thin, tight pile.
The texture is a soft wool while the foundation has a cotton warp and the weft can be either cotton or wool. The weavers use Turkish knots.
