Lilihan rugs were woven South of where Sarouks were produced in the village of Saruk in the Arak region of Persia. Hence they often have very similar design traits, using elegant floral designs and often Lilihan rugs were woven in unusual colours, they also were one of few weaving areas that made squarer proportion rugs.  The finest of the modern Sarouk rugs comes from the small town of Ghiassabad. These town rugs from Sarouk and Lilihan and carpets were commissioned for the western market around the beginning of the 20th Century and always had scrolling vines and floral motifs woven in soft colours.
