Tabriz rugs are some of the most sought-after pieces in Persian rug-making. Hand-knotted in the city of Tabriz, Iran, these rugs are renowned for their beautiful designs and exquisite craftsmanship. Since the 16th century, the city of Tabriz has been an epicenter of the Persian rug industry. Today, its works remain some of the most coveted in all handmade rug provenances.
One of many elements that set Tabriz rugs apart from other Persian carpets is the variety of designs and motifs used. From geometric patterns to florals and paisleys, Tabriz rugs typically feature a wide range of intricate patterns, creating a beautiful tapestry of color and texture. Additionally, Tabriz rugs are typically made with high-quality wool, which gives many a soft and luxurious texture. They are, however, one of the select Persian rug provenances with silk rugs in their ancestry.
Tabriz craftsmanship is also a major draw for designers and collectors alike. Tabriz rug-makers are renowned for their ability to weave extremely intricate designs and complex patterns. Each rug is made with a combination of symmetrical knots, asymmetrical knots, and various weaving techniques. For all these elements and more, Tabriz rugs often represent the most regal Persian rug designs and commission. Some of their accolades include pictorials rugs, palace-size rugs and similarly ambitious works.
Furthermore, because of their high-quality materials, superior craftsmanship and intricate designs, these rugs tend to retain their value over time and age beautifully in the home.
