The city of Heriz is situated in the northwest of Iran, not far from the greater city of Tabriz. In the city and its surroundings carpets are manufactured with a pattern that is easily recognized; in the center there is a large right-angled medallion with large marked corner sections. Large carpets are mainly made by fairly rough yarn on cotton warp with a rustic design. Heriz carpets, with its high wool quality, are well known for their durability and hardiness, and are very suitable for hallways and dining-rooms. Large sizes, from 300x200 cm and more are most common. Similar carpets are made in Georavan and Mehravan. Heriz carpets are suitable for homes as well as for public environments.
