This distinctive rug is an antique Sarouk rug woven in the province of Arak in Iran.
Sarouk rugs are among the most luxurious classically derived, room-sized Persian Carpets. The thickness of the luxurious pile allows Sarouk rugs to withstand the level of foot traffic that would be typical in hallways, common rooms and foyers. The style, quality and durability of Sarouk rugs have made them extremely popular with western consumers over the last century.
This antique Sarouk features classic curvilinear vinescrolls, a beautiful red colored background and opulent arabesques as well as local bouquet-filled designs that represent the diversity of the Persian carpet-weaving traditions.
