Product Description


Sarouk is a name of a village situated about 25 miles north of Arak (Sultanabad). This region became one of the most active regions of carpet weaving in the late 19th Century through the early 20th Century. The city's most famous designer was named Farahan. To be able to compete with Kashan in rug commerce, Farahan designed rugs with center medallion motifs. Today, these carpets are referred to as antique 19th century Farahan Sarouks. However, in the early 20th Century, a vast number of Sarouks with all over floral patterns were exported to the American market. The transition in this design is known as the Mahajaran Sarouk. The resulting latter production in the 1920's through the 1940's became known as the Sarouk.

As with many other new rugs in the market now, rug-designers have gone back to the best old pieces for their models. When rug-makers reproduce American Sarouks, for instance, they often copy exceptional old Mohajaran-types with spare designs. The best producers have captured the exquisite rose-color of old Sarouks. A few manufacturers have undertaken to reproduce old Ferahan Sarouks and one or two have succeeded admirably. Most, though, are still short of the mark when it comes to capturing the beauty of an old Ferahan Sarouk.
