Heriz-Serapi Rugs

Circa: 1890

Serapi carpets are a quality designation for Heriz pieces of a firmer weave, shorter pile and finer quality. There is no village of Serapi among the thirty-odd towns in the Heriz weaving district. Rather, Serapi quality carpets were made anywhere during the 1885 to 1910 period in the locale. The simplicity and striking character of these carpets, along with their basic two-dimensional flat patterning and primary colors has made then almost like room sized Kazaks and they have always been popular in the company of Caucasian scatter rugs. The overall tonality of this highly decorative carpet instead verges on the neutral and as a result it works in almost any furnishing context. This carpet enhances both formal and more rustic decorative schemes, and it works especially well in contemporary settings.
