Notes: A Sarouk rug is a type of Persian rug from the Markazi Province in Iran. Sarouk rugs are those woven in the village of Saruk, as well as the city of Arak, and their surrounding countryside. 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 mostly produced. American customers had an affinity for the Sarouks curvilinear and floral designs. What they did not appreciate, however, was the color. So for much of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, these rugs exported from Iran were dyed to a desirable, deep, raspberry-red color. Sarouk is famous for weaving very heavy body carpets. Sarouk rugs continue to be produced today, using the same methods as during their early production. Known for their exceptional quality and ability to withstand decades of wear, Sarouks continue to be best sellers. They are made with a high quality, tough wool using a Persian knot. A telltale sign of a Sarouk is usually its salmon or tomato-red color mixed with ivory and blues, and a very traditional, floral style.
