    1. Bakshaish Rugs & Carpets

      These are early types of Heriz district carpets. The Heriz area in Azerbaijan, northwest Persia, has been continuously weaving primarily carpet sizes since at least the beginning of the 19th century, if not substantially earlier. The district begins about forty miles east of Tabriz and contains thirty-odd villages. The area is basically triangular with Ahar and Serab at two points, and Heriz village roughly in the center. The small village of Bakshaish does not appear under that name on reliable maps until the 20th century when it becomes present on all rug maps.

      Bakshaish, or whatever name it operated under, has been considered the village where weaving has gone on the longest. There is a number of all wool symmetrically knotted (Turkish knot) long carpets with allover simple floral lattice patterns that can be attributed to Persian Bakshaish weaving. In these rugs yellow or ivory grounds are frequent. These seem to date circa 1800 or shortly thereafter. Somewhat later, although still from the mid-19th century, are a few kellegi format (gallery size) rugs with allover repeats in the Herati pattern or, more rarely, designs closely adapted from Kerman shawl patterns with botehs (paisleys) and stiff connecting vines.
