Notes: 
Feraghans were made between the 1870s and 1913 from a region north of the town of Arak. They are single wefted, long and narrow or room-sized carpets, typically with an all-over Herati design or floral and curling leaf motifs. Feraghan-Sarouks, also called Sarouks, are double-wefted, heavier carpets with a higher knot count than village Sultanabads. Fields are often blue or ivory and designs typically feature either large medallions or representations of trees and birds.
