Sarouk (also Saruk, Sarough or Sarogh) is one of the most famous carpet manufacturing areas of Iran. Located in the western Persian province of ARAK, it includes the carpet provinces of Arak, Jozan, Ghiasabad, Mahal, Malayer, Mohajeran, Sultanabad and Wiss. Particularly sought after by collectors are the ancient and antique carpets of the Mahal and Malayer types, which were knotted between 1880 and 1930.
As a special case of carpet weaving in Iran, the so-called "American Sarouk", which were knotted in the period from 1900 to 1940 especially for the American market. Reduced in shades of rust, red, dark blue and some brown / beige shades, these floral-patterned rugs without a central medal have been increasingly exported from the USA to Europe since the 1970s, referred to as "re-imports". Typical of this type of carpet is a very good wool quality from the Persian highlands. The lower fabric - warp and weft - are usually made of cotton. With old and antique carpets one often finds a blue weft. The Persian knot is usually used for knotting. Blue-ground carpets are much rarer and therefore higher in price than comparable carpets in rust or red.
Knot density varies between 90,000 knots on coarse Mahal carpets and 640,000 knots on high-quality Sarough Ghiasabad rugs.
