Antique Saraband


Crafted over 100 years ago in Iran, this antique Persian Saraband carpet is hand-knotted and measures 4’5” x 6’11”. The blue, green, red, brown, and pink shades of wool originate from organic vegetable dyes and are selected for their bright and fade-resistant tones. The cream and brown hues are all-natural shades of wool, and their neutral tones provide a neutral palette suitable for almost any interior.  Traditionally identified by their brown, yellow, and salmon color palette, Saraband designs typically represent a Persian flower garden. Commonly referred to as Mir rugs, Saraband carpets are distinguished from Mir carpets by their low pile. Additionally, Saraband rugs incorporate the Herati motif and can be within the blue corners as well as the central medallion. Within these rich indigo corners, caterpillar and butterfly motifs sit peacefully among flower and butterfly designs. The foreground design is mesmerizing and is very uncommon when compared to other Saraband pieces. Bouquets are stylized to look like the Herati design and flow from one end of the carpet to the other. Surrounding the field’s design is a triple tear, paisley border. This border interconnects with additional flower and butterfly motifs that encompass the carpet.
