Bakshaish Rugs

Circa: 1880

Although there is no town of Bakshaish in the Heriz weaving area, the term has been applied to those antique rugs & carpets from the later 19th century with generally allover patterns, mellow colors and semi-geometric drawing. The genre transitioned into the characteristic Heriz style by about 1900 and most real Bakshaish carpets are truly antique.
