A Rustically Beautiful Antique Persian Tribal Camel Hair Serab Geometric Runner Rug, Rug Origin: Persia, Circa date: 1900 – Serab is known for its gorgeous camel hair hallway runner rugs, such as this fine example. The village is located in Northwestern Iran and is known for long, geometric tribal rugs. The antique Persian Serab rugs are in a class by themselves and have a unique beauty that sets them apart in the world of carpet collecting.

Like many tribal rugs, these magnificent area rug styles have unique qualities that are dictated by the isolation of the tribe and a lack of exposure to the more commercial rug trade. They had limited materials available because they did not have access to imported materials. This makes them a unique reflection of the artistry of this remote tribe that has been allowed to develop without influence from the larger commercial rug weaving centers and schools.

The antique rugs from Serab are typically larger and usually appear as a runner format, but there are exceptions. The designs usually have long, diamond shapes with a high level of decoration surrounding them, as seen in this piece. Interwoven patterns are often found in the fields of these rugs. It is not unusual to find exotic materials used in these area rugs. You can often find that Serab wove a lot of their rugs using camel hair and sometimes exotic materials such as goat hair and other materials. They used what they had available, and nothing went to waste.

This carpet has the camelhair background that characterizes many of the very best area rugs from Serab. The use of natural fibers and locally available dye materials creates a palette that blends together beautifully and has an earthy feel. It still has the characteristic reds and blues found in other Persian carpets, but the inclusion of camel hair and other exotic natural fibers tones the palette down and gives them a more natural and organic feel.

These magnificent rustic rugs are unique and some of the most captivating and beautiful area rugs in the world. This Serab has a nice weave and that allowed for a more precise rendering of the design. The colors of this runner carpet are rich and warm. This is a captivating piece of artistry from a tribal culture that developed its own unique style.

The skill of the weavers who created this magnificent geometric rug is apparent in every detail. Area rugs such as this could easily fit into a more formal room setting, but it also has a global character that would make it the perfect foundation for a Boho chic room, too. For people who are on a rug buying quest, this is the perfect complement for today’s trendy, nature-inspired color palettes and will create an excellent foundation for your room.
