They have their own very unique style and are easily distinguishable from other styles. The inspiration for the weavers of the Heriz rugs came from the highly religious landmarks in the region. Their most famous design consists of a very large diamond medallion or a star-like floral medallion with eight petals and corners very similar to the centerpiece medallion. These corners are sometimes square or rectangular. The pattern is almost always geometric. Usually the background is very crowded; however, sometimes they have a plain background, especially the older rugs. Although not as common, some Heriz rugs have an allover layout often with geometric floral motifs such the shah abbasi and less frequently curvilinear floral motifs. The favorite colors of Heriz rug weavers consist of brownish red, light and dark pink, light and dark blue and ivory. Blue is normally used to add contrast. the Today, Heriz style is copied by India, Pakistan, China and Romania. What is Worldstock?
