Formely Keleïs were produced in and around Heris, the capital of the Bakshaish territory. The most usual size was about 6 feet 6 inches by 13 feet. Even then the Keleïs produced in the city itself were of better quality and more exact design, the reason being that in the city it was easier to obtain the better wood for the looms than in the country and that the weavers had greater technical facilities at their disposal. The older Heris and Bakshaish carpets can be distinguished from the Keleïs of other parts of Persia by their remarkably soft coloring, due probably to the local water. Elsewhere we find this peculiar softness only in the Caucasus, in the so called Chilas, produced in East Caucasus; and there the phenomenon is attributed to the water.
