For centuries, Tabriz has been designated as a center for the trade of fine, collectible goods. Centrally located in Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Turkey, Tabriz was established as one of the Persian Empire’s largest cities and trade destinations. A distinction of these hand-knotted Persian rugs is the higher than typical knot density per square meter ensures the quality and precision far exceeding the density of most other rugs.
An exemplary display of craftsmanship, the Tabriz design centers around a medallion surrounded by intricate floral and garden motifs. While some Tabriz may offer portraits of palaces and ruins, those are far rarer and should be admired by any true rug collector. This Tabriz displays not only the central medallion shape but replicates the same medallion in minute detail throughout the rug design. A beautiful example of a Mahi Tabriz, or fish shape, the careful attention to detail, unique styling, and a rich-hued palette make this Tabriz one to admire.
