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.
The luxuriant flower motifs of this Tabriz are elegant and varied. The graceful vegetative symbols representing flowers, leaves and branches are artfully intertwined.
The round format of this hand-knotted Tabriz is very rare and is ideal for rooms with a round dining or living room table.
In the middle of the central field of this Tabriz is the symmetrical center, also called medallion. The design of the field is arranged in such a way that it gives the impression that the medallion is floating on the field.
The edge of the rug is decorated with an edging (border). The border forms a beautiful contrast to the center.
The background of this Tabriz is dark red. The border is light blue. The dark blue center combines the colors turquoise and light brown.
You are not the first to appreciate this Tabriz. It has had owners before you who have cherished and used it. It was hand knotted about 1980. It has been thoroughly cleaned and only partially restored condition but is in good condition. We have not completely restored this Tabriz because we think it is as it is effect. If you would like, we will of course restore the rug further for you. We can restore almost any rug to an almost perfect condition.
The pile of this Tabriz has been woven from so-called cork wool. Cork wool is a very fine thread, almost velvety to the touch. Cork wool is obtained from the neck, belly and inner sides of the sheep's legs and is of particularly high quality. 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.
