Place of origin

The city of Tabriz on the northern border of Persia has always been a melting pot of different ethnic and religious groups, due to its location at the crossing of numerous caravan routes. Although the city is located in eastern Azerbaijan, the dialect spoken in Tabriz is closely related to the Turkish language. At the bazaars in Tabriz, handicrafts and especially rugs from the surrounding villages were and are traded.

Patterns

The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Tabriz. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It blends in fantastically with any surroundings and subtly complements the interior design of a room..

The edge of the rug is decorated with an edging (border). The border forms a glorious contrast to the center.

The background of this Tabriz is black. The border features black, beige and gray beige. The rusty red center combines the colors yellow beige and gray.

Condition

This Tabriz has a story. It was hand knotted about 2010. We have cleaned it thoroughly and restored it lovingly. Therefore it is in very good condition despite its age.

Material

The pile of this Tabriz has been hand-knotted from high-quality virgin wool. Individual pattern details were also highlighted with the sheen of mercerized cotton.
Virgin wool is obtained from the shearing of live sheep. Virgin wool is a sustainable natural raw material with a number of impressive properties; due to the wool's natural fat content, the surface repels water droplets and is thus naturally protected against dirt. Wool also offers excellent thermal insulation, has a regulating effect on indoor climate and muffles sound.
Cotton is made up of shiny fibers that are filled with cell sap. When this dries after harvesting, the surface of the fibre warps and loses its shine because of the resulting refraction of light. In the middle of the 19th century, John Mercer invented the mercerization process. In the course of mercerization, cotton is given a new, higher quality fiber structure by being subjected to tensile stress in cold concentrated caustic soda solution. Mercerized cotton has shortened fibers with a round cross-section. The finished fabric does not shrink and has a high dimensional stability. Due to the changed refraction of light, it gains a silky sheen. Also, mercerized cotton absorbs color more easily and is much more tear-resistant than the original material. Since mercerization is complex and expensive, only high-quality cotton fibers undergo this refinement. Because of the silky sheen of the yarn, mercerized cotton is often referred to as "artificial silk", just like viscose. However, the colloquial term "artificial silk" is not permitted under the Textile Labelling Act TKG. The weft and warp threads of this Tabriz are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.

The colors of this carpet change depending on which side it is viewed from. It depends on whether the light falls on the line or against the line of the pile. We have therefore taken pictures of this rug from different perspectives.
