Tabriz is a city in northwestern Iran that is perhaps the oldest rug-weaving center in the world, with a tradition dating back to the 15th century.The weavers of Tabriz emulate the styles from other parts of Iran, but the rug is identified by looking for double wefting, and the undyed or lightly colored cotton warps and wefts.The designs you will find on a Tabriz are dense floral motifs, palmettes, foliage, vases, and miniature flowers in colors of burgundy, red, ivory, creams, blues, tan, and green.These patterns may or may not be centered around a medallion.The pile is wool, or on finer rugs, wool and silk.Tabriz rugs are a high standard of craftsmanship that is appreciated the world over.
