Serapi Rugs, Heriz Serapi Carpets by Beautiful Rugs
Serapi (or Serabi) is a trade name given to better quality Heriz rugs thought to have been woven before 1900. In the United States the highest quality of Heriz rugs are called Serapi, a name that originates from the village of Serab in northwestern Iran.
Beautiful Rugs has a large area traditional Pakistan Serapi (7240MM) handmade rug available that features an elaborate floral pattern, a garrus design of split leaf arabesques with round florets, stylized tulips, and Shah Abassi stylized lotus flowers that are yellow and brown on a deep red field. The central circular rosette medallion is relatively small in contrast to the large serrated pairs of leaves along its sides, and its larger floral pendants. The main border repeats the split leaf arabesques with Shah Abassi lotus flowers, but on a black background, and two bright yellow subsidiary narrow borders provide a strong contrast to the field. The floral patterns on the rug can be readily discerned, and the bright yellow straight and angular tendrils can be clearly seen on the field.
