A Saruk rug is from the Markazi Province in Iran. Saruk (also Sarouk or Sarough) rugs are those woven in the village of Saruk and also the city of Arak and the surrounding countryside. Known for their exceptional quality and ability to withstand decades of wear, Saruks continue to be best sellers today. They are made with a high quality, tough wool using a Persian knot. Sarouk is usually recognizable for its blue weft threads, salmon or tomato-red color mixed with ivory and blues, and a traditional, all-over floral pattern with no medallion or a very small floral medallion.
