Spectacular highly detailed square semi antique Persian Sarouk rug. Size 16.0 x 16.0 feet, made of fine quality lamb's wool pile on cotton foundation, all natural vegetable dye, incorporating a highly detailed allover free flowing floral pattern on a rich red background and eye catching large central medallion, contrasted beautifully by an intricately done floral border. Hand woven by a Persian carpet weaver in Sarouk, Iran. About Sarouk rugs: the thickness of the luxurious pile allows Sarouk rugs to withstand the level of foot traffic that would be typical in hallways, common rooms and foyers. The style, quality and durability of Sarouk rugs have made them extremely popular with western consumers then and now. Sarouk carpets derive their name from an obscure village in Persia, located twenty miles north of arak (formerly Sultanabad). Over a short span of history, this village produced some of the most highly regarded Persian weavings of the late 19th to early 20th century. These rugs are easily recognizable despite their lack of consistent design elements. Most were room sized with central medallions and generally the wefts were blue. The field colors were cream, indigo or a pale red and floral motifs in the field showed multiply shades of orange, green and brown. The short velvet like pile is of excellent quality and wears well. The approximate year of origin: 1970-1980
