In the province of Azerbaijan in northwestern Persia, the village of Sarab served as the name source for antique Sarab rugs. These rugs are unique from other Persian tapestry in terms of average size they are smaller than most. This region is well-known for producing well-made, valuable, beautiful runners and other smaller rugs.
Antique Sarab rugs are mostly smaller sized rugs, but second to none in terms of quality or design. Antique Sarab rugs are largely runners that are three feet wide and anywhere from ten to twenty feet long. However, doormat size rugs are also common from the area. The designs featured in the rugs are geometric. Most have a long medallion focal point with corresponding, similar corner designs. The colors incorporated include red, brown, and blue, and the materials used may include cotton, wool, or both. The weaving itself is of very good quality, with a knot per square inch of 120 on average. This number is important because the higher the knots per square inch, the greater the quality in most cases. Unique to antique Sarab rugs, both Persian and Turkish knots may be found within the same rug. Persian knots are asymmetrical, and Turkish is symmetrical. Most types of rugs employ one, but antique Sarab rugs may contain both in the weaving pattern. These rugs enjoy the highest quality material and composition, but they are mostly smaller in size than other types of Persian rugs.
