Herati rugs are quite well known among the different styles of Persian rugs. Instead of originating from a specific area, these rugs are categorized by their designs and patterns. Hera-ti rugs hold a clearly distinguishable aesthetic that's recognizable from any distance. The rug's flawless and detailed designs have been famous in the carpet market for ages. Other Persian rugs view the Hera ti's designs as an inspiration. The designs used in the Hera-ti rugs are labeled as Herati as well, hence where the name originates. The motifs are based off an old Mongolian-Turkish design: a geometric base normally featuring one flower with four leaves repeating across the carpet. This pattern originated somewhere around the late 15th century from North-western Afghanistan in the city of Herat.
