Persian carpet (Persianفرش ايرانى‎ farsh, meaning “to spread”) or Persian rug (Persian: قالی ايرانى qālī-ye īranī),[1] also known as Iranian carpet, is a heavy textile, made for a wide variety of utilitarian and symbolic purposes, produced in Iran (historically known as Persia), for home use, local sale, and export. Carpet weaving is an essential part of Persian culture and Iranian art. Within the group of Oriental rugsproduced by the countries of the so-called “rug belt”, the Persian carpet stands out by the variety and elaborateness of its manifold designs.

Sarough rugs

Sarouk rug is a type of Persian rug from Markazi Province in Iran. Sarouk (also Saruk or Sarough) rugs are those woven in the village of Saruk and also the city of Arak and the surrounding countryside.

Arak rugs, otherwise known as Arak carpets, are made in the province of Arak, Iran. Technically, all rugs from Arak can be considered Arak rugs but those termed Sarouk are marked as of the best quality, while the more general term Arak is used for rugs of lesser quality

Sarouk rugs have been produced for much of the twentieth century. The early successes of the Sarouk rug are largely owed to the American market. From the 1910s to 1950s, the “American Sarouk”, also known as the “painted Sarouk”, was produced.

Instead of wool, cotton is the common material used within all Sarouk rugs. Sporting a cotton foundation and blue wefts give the Sarouk a light texture that is hard to reciprocate. Over this foundation is a thick pile that, in turn, produces a compact one of a kind carpet. Furthermore, the rug’s thick and overall light tone combine into a comfortable piece that has a smooth outer layer.

Hexagon, diamond, oval shaped, or angular medallions are the primary motif found in Sarouk rugs. These designs are emblazoned by the Sarouk’s predominant colors of red, green, ivory, light blue, and a darker orange. Edging around these motifs is either a toned red or yellow.
