Heris for a long time was well known in Iran and abroad for the long lasting woollen and silk carpets woven in pleasant and agreeable colours. Although the method of weaving these carpets is the same, yet they rarely resemble each other, they are produced in Heris and in thirty nearby villages in medium and big sizes as well as runners. The design of Heris carpets is normally stylised with a very big medallion in the centre that almost covers the field; the corners, too, resemble the centre medallion. The predominant colours are ivory, brownish red, dark and bright pink and blue.
Recently the designs of Hens carpets are copied by Indian and Rumanian weavers, but they are easily distinguished from the original ones as the texture and the colours differ a lot from those woven in Heris. The designs of old Heris carpets differ radically from those of new pieces.
