Tabriz is the capital of the province of Eastern Azerbaijan. Like Mashad on the eastern side of Persian, its present apparent remoteness belies the fact that when the country was larger it had an important role. There are now a huge variety of carpets made in Tabriz, from extremely fine to very coarse pieces. The weavers have great skill, and are aided by a hook-like implement, which they use instead of the fingers for tying knots. The warps and wefts are cotton, the pile wool, often with highlights of silk that can be found in the finest pieces. The colours of the finer carpets are delicate and refined. What makes them so specail is not just the beauty of the motifs themselves but the consistency throughout their rugs. Tabriz feel almost regal to the touch. The central circled medalion here exudes a feel of eastern opulence, yet this rug will subtly lye with its mixture of delicate colours. Will satisfy those with a keen eye for traditional decor. A truly second to none piece. Handwoven with all natural dyes. This rug as with all our rugs are a class above what you will find anywhere online.
