Sarab was one of the leading carpet producing centres in Azarbaijan. Although situated near Hens, carpets from this town greatly resemble those of the more distant Meshkin Shahr.
At the present thick and long wearing runners with the background in red and the borders in white and red are woven in Sarab and its surrounding villages. The fields of these runners usually have lozenge and geometrical shaped medallions.
Formerly carpets were woven with camel wool but at present sheep wool is used for this purpose. The lengths of Sarab carpets are normally two to six metres and their width is approximately one metre.
