    Bakhshayesh
    (Bakhshaish)

    Bakhshaish (or Baxshayesh), a Persian word, means clemency, is a village located right in the middle of Heriz by the Aji Chay (Talxe Roud) bank. Both Turkish and Persian names mean Bitter River which alludes to its alkali quality. Reaching ultimately to Urumia Lake, it waters miles of Persian Azerbaijan pastures and its rich minerals (mostly copper) make Sheep wool coarse and durable; ideal for clothes and floor coverings on the top of cold mountains.

    Bakhshaish is the most famous name among northwestern Persian antique rugs. Its world reputation backs to the second half of 19th century when Tabrizi merchants developed their business and lot of woven goods found their way to Western markets. Nowadays those antique pieces adorn world museums, remaining mostly in good conditions due to durability of their raw materials and firmness of their structures. Today Bakhshaish’s weavers retain their old reputation with their trustable technique and their still long-lasting raw materials.

    Bakhshaish’s weavers produce the most fine-woven pieces of Heriz. Actually some experts give the title ‘Bakhshaish’ to all Heriz pieces with excellent and dense weave. Knots are Turkish/symmetrical, pile is woolen and warp and weft are cotton. Undyed camel hair is also used.

    Carpet sizes are more favored than area rugs. Runners and Kallegis (wide runners) are also common.

    You can’t fail to recognize the red hue of Heriz goods. Obtained from a kind of madder native to Azerbaijan Mountains, this red brings variety of rich and moderated shades on the palettes. Caucasian blue, like the one favored by Armenian weavers, adorn some pieces as well as navy blue and Khaki. All dyes are natural (herbal and mineral). Some Bakhshaishs enjoy a special golden khaki mostly as ground color. This unique hue is the result of using undyed camel hair which grant Bakhshaishs radiance and glamour.

    Famous antique Bakhshaishs have mostly Herati patterns in all-over designs. Experts often mention their similarities with both old Sultan-Abad pieces and Caucasian designs. Unique tribal-influenced designs could also be found amongst them with animal motives grazing on hills and between trees, reminding the very biome of Azerbaijan province. ‘Tree of Life’ had been also a favored design and there remained some exquisite examples of the symbol in museums around the world.

    Being separated from Bakhshaish antique style, new Bakhshaish pieces follow the total basics of Herizes, namely the central medallion design in a free rustic style with fine rectilinear patterns the total shapes of which are derived from curvilinear designs. This is a basic description for all Heriz pieces but every village follows its own tradition. Bakhshaishs, too, have their own charm, enjoying the most elaborate compositions among Herizes. It seems the very elegance of antique patterns are kept in every single line of new pieces, despite the change from all-over to central designs. In other words, we can describe new Bakhshaishs as detailed and intricate Herizes.
