The city of Sultanabad, now known as Arak, was founded in 1808 to become the major center of rug production in Iran. The marvelous piece before your eyes comes from this renowned place with all the glory and glamour. Its masterful execution is visible at first glance as the rug, despite being made almost a hundred years ago, shows no signs of wear or damage. It was thoroughly hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques which ensure its quality, durability and uniqueness. What immediately catches the eye, apart from the intricate design, is the vividness and the wide variety of colors which remain in perfect harmony due to the proper toning and impeccable application. The rich and saturated indigo, rosewood, sandy and maroon are balanced by the light beige prevailing in the main field's background. In terms of design, both the field and multiple borders are highly ornamental and comprise traditional oriental motifs, from irises and Shah Abbas to protective symbols and vases. This antique Persian rug exudes an energetic, warm and merry vibe. It will be a perfect addition to any classy interior, imbuing it with oriental chic and palatial glamour.
