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.

While the colors in this rug may be typical of pieces produced in the area, they are extremely well balanced, and the design makes use of unique elements which make the piece more interesting.

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.
