CU-1475 - Antique Persian Heriz Serapi Rug
13ft 05in X 18ft 05in
This carpet is a fine example of the eccentric and imaginative Serapi quality Heriz carpets woven at the end of the 19th century. The rug is of medium weave with a flat back and has an all-cotton foundation with symmetric pile knotting. This carpet enhances both formal and more rustic decorative schemes, and it works especially well in contemporary settings.
Vacuum your rug frequently and use a vacuum which uses suction and does not have bristles. If possible, set vacuum to low power setting and vacuum the rug up and down and do not use a back-and-forth motion.
If possible, rotate the rug every few years to allow foot traffic to be spread evenly and shade the rug from direct sunlight to avoid fading in areas.
A rug pad is recommended on all surfaces to prevent slipping and stop marking if on floors with grooves or lines. Professional cleaning is recommended every two or three years.
