Tabriz Carpet Collection 2: Photo Gallery

(Carpet Museum of Iran)

Tabriz, the central city of Eastern Azarbaijan, is one of the oldest cities in Iran to which Moghadassi, the tenth century AD geographer refers as “a very beautiful, prosperous and developed city”.

Tabriz carpets are very diversified in weave and design, including the corner medallion design, palmette flowers, weeping willow, cypress tree, geometrical patterns, hunting scene design, Harati, and prayer-niche designs. Pictorial rugs of Tabriz are also very well known. Some of the exquisite Tabriz carpets are decorated with imaginary motifs, cartouches as well as Persian poetry and verses from the Quran. Tabriz carpets are woven in different sizes. The warps and wefts of Tabriz carpets are often cotton threads, but in some cases they are silk. Tabriz carpets are woven with Turkish or symmetrical knots, with the help of a hook. They are double wefted with ridgeback construction. The selvedges were traditionally made, flat straw like in the past, but nowadays they are made round, with four warps.

The dyers of this region have achieved a lot and produce beautiful colors such as brick red, dark and light blue. Hadj Jalili and Kahnamou’i workshops are the famous carpet-weaving workshops in Tabriz which were active in 19th century AD.
