More about the provenance Sarouk, ca. 1920 | 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.

The special wool with which this Oriental rug has been made is called "Kork" wool. The Persian word "Kork" means "soft down". This expression is used for particularly fine and soft wool for very high quality rugs, especially for expensive rugs made in esteemed manufactures like e. g. in Kashan. It is common to add the word "Kork" to the provenance name as in e. g. "Kashan Kork".
