Product Information

Details

This beautiful rug is a unique piece of world art that will enhance your living space. Serapi is a trade name given to better quality versions of Heriz rugs thought to have been woven before 1900. Heriz rugs are very famous with rug collectors today as they have their own unique style and are easily distinguishable from other rug styles. This particular rug is the Persian Serapi design but created with more up to date colors. The knot count per square inch for this rug is 180. The rug is 100 percent wool with vegetable dyes. The pile height is 0.25 inches. Colors include red, ivory, black, gold and grey.

Story Behind the Art:
This rug was made by Afghan refugees in the Pakistani camps. The weavers get their wool from local villages and they complete the entire process of cleaning and dyeing. The weavers no longer live in the camps and have moved back to Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban government. Due to the handmade nature of our rugs, the size may vary from as advertised by 3-4 inches. Regular vacuuming and annual professional cleaning will keep your rug looking new for years to come. Herat Oriental has been providing beautiful, authentic, handmade rugs to Worldstock for over 10 years. Worldstock has given us the opportunity to create jobs for over 2,000 local village weavers, which helps them to greatly support their families. The majority of the weavers are women, who live in the villages of Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. As we grow with Worldstock, we are able to create more jobs for female weavers who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so. The community also thrives from rug weaving as the local farmers benefit from wool sales, and the local artisans create natural and vegetable dyes for the weavers to use in their designs.

Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.

All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.

Please keep in mind that new wool rugs may initially shed and have a natural capacity to shed for several months after purchase. This is normal due to the nature of construction of most wool rugs and not a defect. Click here to view our Wool Rug Care Guide.
