Sarouk Persian Carpet

Size: 7 foot 2 inch by 10 foot 7 inch.

This is the traditional pattern of a village in the Sarouk area called Vist. Long ago the Sarouk production area was in a province called Arak. Arak was spilt up but in rug books they like to use the old terms. You will also see this mentioned as a Viss. Oriental Carpet Design by P.R.J. Ford is a great source on the Vist Sarouk.

This handmade Persian carpet is from the Sarouk area. This rug is in excellent condition and is 20 to 30 years old.
