A Persian Tabriz carpet, No. 164371 200x310cm

The city of Tabriz, located in Persia, was once the leading centre for the trade of Persian carpets and rugs. Its proximity to western markets, coupled with its accessibility via road transportation, made it a prime destination for European importers. The city and its surrounding villages have a rich carpet-making history that dates back thousands of years.

What sets Tabriz carpets apart is the wide variety of designs created by the weavers, likely a result of the diverse cultural influences in the area. These carpets are not only aesthetically pleasing but also durable and charming. They are a reflection of the artistry and culture of the past and can add elegance to any interior decor.

The Tabriz carpet featured here is from the 1950s and showcases a charming design and colour combination. The rug's patina, which is only found in carpets made with hand-spun wool and natural dyes, adds to its beauty and uniqueness.
