High-quality hand-knotted rug made in Sarab, Northwest Iran. The old carpets were knotted on a wool warp, while the more recent ones are knotted on a cotton warp. Sarab used to produce mainly high-quality runners with geometric patterns composed of hexagonal medallions, on a generally camel coloured field, with blue, burnt earth, light blue and beige patterns.

Production period: 1930.
This rug was made with fine wools coloured with plant dyes, using sheep wool coloured with vegetable dyes and camel hair (not dyed) for the field. Inside the triple frame are five interconnected hexagonal medallions; the pile is thick, glossy and even; the state of preservation is very good.
This rug comes from an auction house, it was professionally cleaned a year ago.
It comes with its certificate of authenticity.
The photos are part of the item's description.

Accurate express shipping with tracking.

Almost no region has ever specialised in the production of a specific format of rugs. Sarab is the exception. This region in North Iran mainly produces runners. Another interesting feature is the use of camel wool. Thanks to the use of robust wool and the type of knotting, these are among the most hard-wearing rugs. With a timeless and unique design against a camel coloured field, this rug is perfect for any kind of interior décor. The predominant pattern consists of hexagons repeated within one or more frames.
