Persian Ahar rugs and carpets

The Iranian rug weaving town of Ahar is situated just north of the famous rug and carpet weaving city of Heriz. The name is often prefixed to Heriz and most people would find it difficult to see the difference but Ahar Heriz rugs and carpets have a unique style from Heriz. simply speaking the design is more rounded and less geometric than the traditional Heriz rug. they also seem to be woven in softer colours. In London's oriental rug warehouses they are a rarity, and I think that will hold these rugs and carpets in high esteem for many years to come.
