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 a 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 semi-antique has a striking golden medallion with a salmon-hued background. The finely woven patterns throughout the field serve as a stage to display the master recreation of an ancient Sheikh Safi design with an extremely dense weave and entirely naturally dyed wool. The result is a stunning example of the Tabiz's rich, prominent history in the Persian empire.
