Description

Serab Rugs are known for their fine long rugs or runners with a characteristic camel ground and lozenge-shaped medallions. Traditional rugs from Serab feature an elongated composition that is bounded by ornamental borders. Local styles favor bold lozenge shaped medallions and angular floral motifs that are typical of Persia’s northwestern region. The angular style of antique carpets from Serab bears some similarity to tribal Bakshaish rugs and those made by Kashgai weavers. These decorative runners are traditionally made in the county of Sarab.


Although camel-colored fields are the most common, mulberry red backgrounds and brick-colored fields are also common. The camel fields of antique Serab rugs are traditionally accented with Persian blue motifs and tricolor patterns that include robust blues, warm terracotta reds and sunny yellows. Color palettes used in antique Serab rugs tend to be somber and slightly oxidized, which makes them ideal for complementing traditional western decor. Unlike the large-room sized rugs from Heriz, antique rugs from Serab typically feature an elongated runner-style format.
