Sarab Runner North West Iran Serab Carpets Rugs

Sarab is a very small town 61 miles 100 kilometers south west of Ardabil in north west Iran close to the border of Russia. Sarab is also 66 miles 112 kilometers south east of Tabriz. Sarab carpets are rare and have double corded flat selvages. They have symmetrical knots and old ones come with wool foundation. This particular runner was made in early 20th century and it is in harvest gold color with the size of 3' 6" x 11' 4". The motives are great with paisley  (boteh), star and goat abstractions. As the designs of other rugs of the region, Sarab rugs (mostly runners) have geometric designs. A big difference between Sarab and other rugs of the region is in the foundation. Heriz, Tabriz, Qaradjeh, Ardabil (newer ones), Marand, Goravan (Gerevan), and Bakhshayesh rugs all have cotton foundations while Sarab and Meshkin  carpets have wool foundations.

This charming 100-year old antique Sarab runner is priced $1,950 with a free top of the line rug pad and free shipping in the U.S. continent.
