Most similar to the Sultanabad rugs are Heriz and Serapi rugs; this similarity being attributed to the magnificent graphic character of the designs. Yet within this similarity, the line work of the Heriz/Serapis is always more curvilinear and classical. Sultanabad rugs share with Persian rugs all-over designs of palmettes and vinescrolls, but as they use a larger, suppler weave, the Sultanabad designs tend to be larger as well.
The most popular color of the Sultanabad rugs was a deep rose red. The red dye was created by bathing wool for two days in madder and whey after which it was scoured for nearly another two days with running water.
The term Sultanabad has come to distinguish the oldest and highest quality Mahal rugs which were produced in the Arak region. Sultanabad rugs and carpets were made in the same area as the earliest Farahans and Sarouks, but they are very different. Ultimately, Sultanabad rugs and carpets share a common classical Persian repertoire of floral motifs, whether they utilize medallion or overall designs of vinescrolls and palmettes.
However, Sultanabad rugs and carpets tend to have a larger, more supple weave. Indeed the design of Sultanabad rugs resembles that of Heriz or Serapi somewhat in its graphic and monumental character, but even so the linework is always more curve-linear and classical. Sultanbad rugs and carpets also often have a rich, warm palette like that of Farahans and the earliest Sarouks.
