History of Origin

Sultanabad is a Privious name for arak. Located in north Central Iran, this city is not only an agricultural trade center but also is the home for the creation of rugs, pottery, metalwork. Sultanabad rugs are hand-woven, uniquely beautiful pieces that will enhance any room with their lively colors and warm motifs. The history of this town is very deep and its commercialized rug weaving industry dates back to the 17th century. Persian civilization initially began weaving rugs about 3500 years ago. Each single item in the pattern of the rugs therefore has a history of being woven in carpets for thousands of years. Sultanabad rugs are famouse for bold, all-over patterns and with softer palettes than the more vibrant Persian counterparts.Sultanabad rugs developed an almost immediate following, especially among newly Western industrialists. early collectors included the Guinness family, the owners of the stout-beer manufacture, who laid them in Elveden Hall, their Suffolk, England, estate. Sultanabad pieces are becoming the most sought after rugs and carpets on the western market. Sultanabad rugs and carpets, also, go well with any decor. They are of excellent quality. The colors primarily used are dark reds, navies, soft greens and ivories. They are comprised of a soft, thin wool and has a very well textured pile. And although it is not uncommon in older or antique pieces,. The warp is made mostly of cotton and the weft can be either made of cotton or wool. Most often it is made of cotton, but sometimes goat hair is used for the foundation. The wool of the rugs is hand- spun, usually from the weaver's own sheep. The rugs are woven using asymmetrical Persian knots. There are many different grades of rugs made from this region, ranging from medium to fine. Carpets and rugs from Sultanabad are very beautiful and there is a very high demand for older pieces. They are much more expensive compared to any of the similar carpets from the surrounding areas due to their vibrant colors, quality, and designs.
