Iran SUMAK HAND Woven Rugs
The word 'sou' in Soumak means needle in Persian, so meaning is also related to needle work. Iranian Sumac Rugs were woven using the additional scarf technique. In flat rugs, horizontal weft threads pass over and under vertical warp threads. In Sumak, scarves are actually wrapped around warp, in this way a fuller rug with a rich embroidered appearance appears.
