More about the provenance Sarouk | Iran

Sarouk is located in West Iran, in the zone of production of Arak. The source of this important provenance has been in the village of Sarouk (also written Sarough) North of Arak. Sarouks are known to be of high quality. The pile is usually higher than the average Persian rug and therefore Sarouks are rather heavy and solid rugs, the wool being used is high quality durable wool.

This Oriental rug has been treated with an "Antique Finish" wash. This wash includes not only the actual cleaning of the carpet but also its processing (ennobling) which represents an increase in the carpet's value. Carpet lovers often appreciate the "patina", the antique look which is reached by ageing, usage, and light exposure. Therefore this wash has been developed which actually accelerates this procedure and turns the colors of a rug, which often still feel and look "raw" after the carpet production, into softer and older looking colors. By this special technique a soft and silky feel is added to the Oriental carpet as well. This washing technique requires experience and skill since otherwise carpets could easily be damaged by it. In this case the washing was implemented perfectly.
