tabriz-goldTraveling through north-western Iran you will come across the second largest city in Iran, the ancient city of Tabriz. Tabriz is home to the renowned weavers with their rug designs and colors that contribute to the diverse range of Tabriz rugs.

Historically a significant trading center down the silk route linking the Orient with Europe, Tabriz has been exposed to the cultural influences from different countries including Europe and it was a major center for art and learning during the fifteenth century.

Renowned as one of the oldest and most respected rug producers in the world, Tabriz has previously produced a centuries old rug taking the prize for the most expensive rug at an auction at the time and exceeding well over its estimated value and placing many Tabriz carpets at the high end of the international rug trade.

Tabriz rugs stand out for their unique shapes including octagonal, oval and on rare occasions diamond and even star shaped rugs can be found. Woven with a double weft generally on a base of fine cotton although occasionally on pure silk, the rugs feature intricate floral motifs, pictorials in the field and dramatic hunting scenes in rich reds, burgundy, navy and the more subdued tones of beige and pink. Varying from pastels to deep rich shades, the coloring of Tabriz rugs typically feature cream backgrounds and egg blue medallion designs with reds being terra-cotta or rust and the greens appearing pistachio or forest.

If you are looking for a change in the interior design of your home or office the choice of colors in the design of the Tabriz Rugs can complement and transform the mood of a room giving you and your environment a new lease on life.

Whether you are buying a Tabriz Persian rug for purely decorative reasons or for a functional purpose in your environment, a Tabriz rug is an exquisite and timeless masterpiece that will be a prized investment!
