Sarouk rugs are a type of Persian rug that originated in the village of Sarouk (also spelled Saruk or Sarough) in the western Arak district in Iran. These rugs are renowned for their high quality wool, and weave in floral designs. Although Sarouk rugs have been produced for centuries, the 1930s is considered a particularly significant commercial rug production period for their production due to several factors. 

During the 1930s, Sarouk rugs experienced a surge in popularity in the West, particularly in the United States. This was partly due to the increasing interest in Oriental rugs among Western collectors and interior decorators. The Sarouk rugs from this period are often characterized by their dense, plush pile and rich, vibrant colors and over-dye or painting with so-called "American Sarouk" rugs. The designs typically feature floral motifs, medallions, and curvilinear patterns, often executed in shades of red, blue, and ivory.

One of the distinguishing features of Sarouk rugs from the 1930s is their use of high-quality wool and expert craftsmanship. The result was a rug that was not only beautiful but also incredibly durable, capable of withstanding years of use.


 Sarouk rugs from the 1930s marked a time of innovation and refinement in Persian rug weaving, and Sarouk rugs were at the forefront of this movement.Today, Sarouk rugs from the 1930s exist in the used rug marketplace and are prized by many for their beauty and craftsmanship. They are often handed down in families and considered valuable heirlooms, cherished for their ability to add warmth, elegance, and character to any interior space.
