This carpet originates in the area of Sarouk, slightly south of Tehran in NW Persia. This area, and surrounding regions, have a long history of rug making, dating back to at least the beginning of the 17th Century.
Rugs woven in Sarouk vary greatly in quality and design execution. This particular piece is distinctive because of its repetitive use of the same geometric shape, which outlines the medallion, in the corner and borders.
