Persian Sultanabad Rugs

Sultanabad (Arak) is an old city in northwest Iran, and is renowned for the high quality carpets woven with bold floral patterns. Most carpet production took place in the late 19th century when European companies commissioned large decorative carpets for the European market. Sultanabad carpets are characterized by three general motifs. One is the Herati, distinguished by a flower within a diamond that is flanked by curving leaves, which sometimes resemble fish. Another is the Sarouk, named for a village in the Arak area and features central medallions. A third motif of Sultanabad carpets, the Semovar, features recurring rather than central medallions. The carpets in our Sultanabad collection are based on these beautiful floral patterns, but have been made in much finer qualities in Pakistan.
