Saraband is located in West Iran and belongs to the carpet weaving area of Arak (former Sultanabad). The Saraband rug is one of the most popular Persian rugs which has hardly been changed over the decades. The most frequent design is the Mir-pattern which has its name from the nearby village of Mal-i-Mir though today the Mir rug is produced in wider areas around Arak.
