More about the provenance Sarouk Mahal | 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 (formerly Sultanabad). 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. About 80-100 years ago American companies ordered relatively fine Mahal rugs with higher pile Western influenced designs which today are called "Sarouk Mahal", "Sultanabad" or "Sarouk Mohajeran". Today these rugs achieve high prices in the market for antique rugs.
