Serapi Traditional Persian Area Rug
Antique Serapi rugs were made by small workshops and families, which resulted in formal Persian carpets as well as those with rustic tribal influences. Local production methods contributed to the characteristic abrash that adds a textural appearance to the stark field and contrasting decorations seen in many Persian Serapi rugs. These fine antique carpets were made in many sizes and shapes ranging from elongated corridor carpets to highly desirable room-size rugs. Persian Serapi rugs feature clear colors, creamy un-dyed fleece beautifully tempered reds, warm earth tones and concentrated blues. Largely produced before 1910, antique Serapi rugs feature rustic patterns, exceptional colors, high-quality wool and impeccable construction, which resulted in their coveted reputation for quality and value.
