The Sarouk’s namesake is a village located 25 miles north of Arak (Sultanabad) in Iran (formerly of the Persian Empire). This region was one of the most productive for rug weaving featuring the coveted designs of Farahan, the most famous Sarouk designer. These rugs are often referred to as Farahan rugs as a tribute to the famous designer. To compete with the popularity of rugs crafted in Kashan, Farhan created a center medallion motif. Today, most of the antique Sarouks fabricated during the late 19th century are often referred to as Farahan Sarouks.
Hand-knotted Persian Sarouks are often considered the most luxurious, high-quality rugs from the Arak region. These rugs feature deep color palettes just like the scarlet, rust navy coloring featured in this collectible specimen. This Sarouk faithfully explores the curvilinear designs of floral and medallion motifs reminiscent of this Persian beauty. The exquisitely detailed border encapsulates the grandiosity of the central medallion. Look no further for a Persian rug that culminates tradition and style.
