(High-Decorative) This extremely unique antique Persian village rug is a surprising departure from the central medallion design of the great majority of Heriz antique carpets. Instead, it employs both an inventive, complex allover design of vases bursting forth with elaborate flowers and an unexpected palette of warm earth tones and pastels, all of which are naturally dyed, as in every Claremont rug. Dramatic use of color striation (an intentional technique known as abrash) creates a compelling sense of movement and depth, lending an engaging painterly quality. Heavier pile makes this the practical as well aesthetic solution for a well-trafficked space.
