The Sultanabad design originated in the city of Arak, formerly known as Sultanabad, during the early 1800s. It served as a center for commercial rug production in Iran, specifically catering to Western demands. The rugs woven by Ziegler and Co. from Sultanabad featured updated colors and larger scale all-over patterns, which some attribute to being the initial formation of the Arts and Crafts movement. These rugs were designed and produced primarily for export to European consumers, showcasing a delightful fusion of Persian and Western influences.
Known for their supple weave and bold, large-scale designs, Sultanabad rugs possess a curve-linear and classical aesthetic, with a casual and tribal feel. The warm color palettes of Sultanabads resemble those of the earliest Sarouk Farahan Persian carpets. Carpets from Sultanabad are highly sought after in the modern marketplace, both for their historical significance and their ability to seamlessly blend old and new elements in home environments.
This rug measuring 13'2" x 18'10" is a striking addition to any space, offering versatility and visual appeal. The design and craftsmanship of Sultanabad rugs have stood the test of time, making them a classic choice for discerning buyers. The diverse selection of colors found in these rugs ranges from subtle neutrals to vibrant reds and clear blues, creating a regal Western appearance. Unique color combinations, such as tourmaline pink paired with oxidized green, showcase their ability to reinvent traditional designs.
