Centrally located in Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Turkey, Tabriz was established as one of the Persian Empire’s largest cities and trade destinations for centuries. A distinction of the hand-knotted Tabriz rug is the higher than typical knot density per square meter that ensures quality and precision far exceeding the density of most other Persian pieces.
An exemplary display of craftsmanship and artisanship, the Tabriz design centers around a medallion surrounded by intricate garden motifs. While some Tabriz rugs offer portraits of architectural wonders, those are far rarer and should be sought by any true rug collector, at least for a memorable glance. This unique Tabriz rug is one of those exceptions, displaying a pictorial scene of flora and fauna as the central design within the medallion and throughout the rug. The result is a stunning example of Tabriz's rich, prominent history in the Persian Empire.
