This is a classic, spectacular American ‘painted’ Sarouk runner  made in the Arak region in Northwest Central Iran. These rugs were very popular and in high demand in the 1920’s -1930’s by the American and European markets. Americans preferred the darker reds  and rugs exported to the USA  were darkened or painted with a deeper red dye.   Sarouks are known for their extremely resilient, shiny, springy wool, fine weave, and jewel colors,

Please note: a cloth Made in Iran tag is sewn on back of rug…  This is rare as most later tags were stapled on.
