Persian Sarouk 54 x 72 cm


54 x 72 cm

Persian Sarouk; 20 years old in great condition.

Unique piece that wholly focuses on the vase of flowers which serves as the central medallion. The vase radiates outwards on the cream field with a plethora of floral motifs. Complex multiple border with even more detailed floral motifs. Beautiful elegant piece that is more like a picture than a rug. Ideal as a cushion face.


Sarouk (Saruk)
The Sarouk is the best quality rug from the Arak weaving district of central Iran, an area that was once called Sultanabad. For over half a century, Sroughs have been woven in a distinctive design that consists of brightly coloured detached floral sprays, with or without a medallion, laced throughout a red or blue field and surrounded by a simple main border in a contrasting colour. One variant of the standard Sarouk design is the small repeated boteh pattern called the Seraband, or Mir. In addition, Sarouks are also occasionally woven in patterns that resemble the open field Kerman, and Sarouks destined fro the European market are worked in a classic intertwining medallion design. These are sometimes called Jozan Sarouks because of their resemblance to the rugs produced in the nearby town of Jozan.

Sarouks are woven on cotton warps, and sometimes you will be able to identify them by their distinctive blue wefts. The knotting can be very fine, and the wool is of excellent quality, so the finished carpet is quite hard-wearing. The pile, which was once clipped (shaved) quite close, is now left somewhat longer in deference to tastes of the Western market.
