Large spectacular Persian Vis rug in a deep blue. (Also spelled Viss and Wiss)

Colors are quite vivid and include blue, red, ivory, white, gold and olive.

Overall condition is good but with some areas of notable wear. Most of the wear is along one end but there is a small area of wear near the center. (Areas of wear are shown in CU photos 7 and 8.)

Fringe and side cords are in excellent condition.

Very thick and heavy rug. Despite the wear the rug could be placed in a high foot traffic area of the home without concern.

{I can show my rugs on SATURDAY, Jan. 19th. I need dry weather since I unroll them outside. Although it's raining this week, the forecast for Saturday looks fine. Please contact me before Saturday to schedule a viewing.}

This rug was woven in the area of Vis -- although this particular motif is similar to Mahal and some Heriz carpets.

Vis weavers work with saturated colors, thick natural wool pile, and typically sharp angles. Woven in limited numbers in a small area, they are coveted by rug collectors.

Natural wool woven onto natural cotton. 1960s. Exact size is 11 ft. by 7 ft. 6 in.

Vis is a small town located near the city of Golpayegan, Iran -- in the district of the same name.

Vis includes an eclectic mix of Kurds, Azeri (Turkish), and Bakhtiari nomadic people. These tribes have influenced the rugs and carpets produced in the city, which are dazzling and distinctive, and typically rendered in bold crimson or deep blue.
