Centrally located in Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Turkey, Tabriz was established as one of the Persian Empire’s largest cities and trade destinations for centuries and was designated integral to the trade of fine, collectible goods. A distinction of the hand-knotted Tabriz rugs is the higher than typical knot density per square meter that ensures quality and precision far exceeding the density of most other Persian rugs.
An exemplary display of craftsmanship and artisanship, the Tabriz design centers around a medallion surrounded by intricate floral and garden motifs. While some Tabriz rugs offer portraits of architectural wonders, those are far rarer and should be sought by any true rug collector, at least for a memorable glance. This Tabriz displays a central medallion shape, of different neutral tones set against a very detailed floral motif backdrop. There is no blank space in this rug, making the intricate details a fascinating lesson in careful craftsmanship.
