Story Behind the Art Rugs with certain designs woven in Arak, surrounding villages, and the plains of Farahan in Iran are designated as Sarouks within the rug trade. Nineteenth-century rugs of this area often employed an all-over design of the Herati or Gul Hennai patterns. These were woven with about 100 asymmetric knots per square inch on a cotton foundation. In the late nineteenth century, factory rugs were woven in imitation of Tabriz models, using floral medallions. The medallion design was dominant until after the First World War, when Sarouk rugs were woven with detached floral sprays. This design was extraordinarily popular. Currently, Sarouk designs of detached floral sprays are used in rugs woven in India, Romania, and China.Made by skilled craftsman, the rug is a beautiful symphony of bold motifs, stunning colors and consummate artisanship. This rug representing an illustrious legacy of exquisite artistry and the intricate craftsmanship is primed to add visual glamor and class to its surroundings.
