Hand woven work with all natural dyes, this beautiful Persian Serapi from the 1880s definitely strikes a chord! This rug from the northwest of the country and has coarse wool, is low pile and has amazing character with light, scattered wear throughout. It has earned lovely character and that look we kill for.
The french blue corners are divine and an aspect of the rug we definitely gravitate toward! The central medallion is stylish and large and you will see deep indigo blue dyes (appears black, but is indeed blue!)
This rug is in super clean condition, no tears, just good old wear and has another century of life to go. Go ahead and dive into the pics, we have many of them with detail into the delicious dyes that are calm and lovely.

Fun facts: Fun facts: Heriz rugs are known for their strength & durability. Coined "the Iron Rug of Iran," Heriz rugs were produced in the Northwest corner of Iran, on and around Mount Sabalan. One reason for the toughness of Heriz carpets is that Mount Sabalan sits on a major deposit of copper. Trace copper in the drinking water of sheep produces the most desired wool for rug weaving because it makes wool that is stronger and more resilient than wool from most other areas. It is said that many Heriz rug designs are woven from memory, with intricate designs passed on through generations of artisans.
