The typical madder red color and a highly individual medallion are the main characteristics of these popular carpets.. Brown, beige and turquoise shades indicate older pieces. The designs of old Heriz rugs differ radically from those of new pieces. Old and antique Heriz carpets are sometimes found in large formats and in wonderful blue and turquoise shades. center medallions patterns are often richly decorated and have a characteristic, rather rectangular shape. Filler motifs include arabesques, palmettes and rosettes in colourful repeats. Also characteristic are the square or rectangular corners in the field, often decorated with arabesques
