An informal term for 19th century carpets woven in northwest Persia’s Azerbaijan province, specifically in the Heriz district. In the United States, these highest quality of the Heriz carpets are called Serapi. Designs are very geometric, and construction tends to be high quality with between 80 to 100 knots per square inch.
