This rug is from 1950 which were woven by nomads of Tabriz. Tabriz is the word driven from the name of a city where this rug is woven. Tabriz is one of the oldest rug weaving center. It is also the center of classically designed antique carpets. Different types of rugs were made here, including pile and flat-weave, with diverse designs from medallion, Herati/Mahi, to figural and pictorial. In this city, geometric designs are also used extensively. The original design of this rug has been a large medallion surrounded by small geometric pattern but after over dyeing, the initial design is somewhat faded to see a solid colour.
Tabriz rugs are woven by using a Turkish knot. In Turkish knot – which are known as Ghiordes or symmetrical knot, both sides of the yarn are passed between two adjacent warps, then pulled through the center. Tabriz rugs take longer to be produced(about 1.5 to 2 years) because Turkish knots are more delicate. So the number of knots per square inch is higher in Tabriz rugs. This number is important because the large number of knots makes it possible to draw circular design. Curved lines in a rug design can be drawn more smoothly and gracefully in a Persian rug with many knots per square inch. It makes Persian rugs so unique and admirable. Besides, this type of knot and using natural colours in this rug makes it remain durable after years of use.
Every rug in our handknotted collection is a one off piece.
