Persian Tabriz Rugs

Tabriz Rugs are in the general category of Persian carpets from the city of Tabriz, the capital city of East Azarbaijan Province in north west of Iran. Tabriz is one of the oldest rug weaving centers and makes a huge diversity in rugs. The knot range starts from 24 Raj (Number of knots per 7 cm of the widths of the rug) to the incredibly fine 110 Raj. The material of the foundation are usually cotton or silk which are for very fine rugs.
Tabriz is one of the most famous carpet making centers in Iran. It plays a significant role in developing the rich traditions of the decorative and applied arts.

Different Types of Tabriz Rugs

Different types of rugs were made here, including pile and flat-weave, with simple and complex composition. The carpet making art passes on from generation to generation and is the most valued heirloom. The traditional topics for the Tabriz rugs are the ornamental patterns, with the following dominant background colors: cream, red or navy blue.
The most typical for this school are rugs and carpets under the common name “Lachak Turanj”. In the middle of the center field and in the corners of the carpet (“Lachak”)(Persian: لچک‎‎ triangle) there are “Turanj”(Persian: ترنج‎‎ Citron). The Turanj in the center of the carpet is a symbol of the Moon. َAnd the pattern of lozenges with the toothed leaves on the edges symbolizes the scales of the fish, which rise to the surface of the water at midnight to admire the Moon reflection.

The origin of this composition dates back to the 9th-10th centuries. Often the topics for the Tabriz rugs are drawn from the works of the great oriental poets. The carpets usually depict the scenes of falconry or images of a ferocious lion. Well known are also Tabriz carpet-pictures with images of fragments of palaces and mosques, and finally scenes of battles. Probably, in creation of this or that ornamental pattern, hand-painting covers of ancient books had a significant role in weavers inspiration.
The following are some famous types of Tabriz rugs:

Heriz 

The name of these carpets come from the village of Heris or Heriz in the North East of Tabriz. The stylistic decoration of the “Heriz” carpets is rather unusual. The composition and common shapes of the details are on the basis of the composition “Lachak Turanj”. In which the curve-linear patterns form them. However, with time the patterns of this composition became dotted, and they create an independent carpet pattern. Normally, the carpet was woven from memory, without a sketch. There is not surprising because since the beginning of the 16th century, the craftsmen in Heriz have traditionally been making only this type of carpet. And they know perfectly well its design and pattern. In addition, note that the residents of Heris are also renowned for production of flat-weave rugs and Kilims.

Four Seasons

The “Dord fasil” (“Four Seasons” in Azerbaijani) is famous in Azerbaijan and other parts of Iran. The carpets of this type combine ancient elements of the decorative art, traditional symbolism dating back to the spiritual conceptions of the early farming age, and religious scenes. Each of the four parts of the carpet field is unique in terms of its composition. Because, It depicts scenes of each season and represents the images of the peasants’ way of life.

Autumn pictures: “harvesting, tillage and sowing.”
Winter images: “the peasants sweep the snow off the roofs, whip up the loaded donkeys to the village. In the foreground there is a worker with a spade offering his services while the background depicts the masterpiece of the Azerbaijani architecture of the 15th century – the “Blue Mosque” in Tabriz.”
The spring landscape shows vivid colors: “trees in bloom, a shepherd with a flock of sheep. A girl listening to the sounds of his reed-pipe. And finally an old man with a tobacco pipe, talking to a peasant.”
The summertime picture: “harvesting, women and children bind sheaves and take them off the field. The background shows a baby camel.”

Despite the independence of each of the scenes, they are together in terms of composition and style. The illusion of space is obvious through the three-plane reproduction of the topic motifs. The dominating colors are of golden and red hues, which help to ensure a common rhythm.

Trees or Tree of Life

It is their composition that gave the name to these carpets rather than the place of production. In other parts of Iran, these carpets are famous under the name of “Derakhti”. Hence in Afghanistan the name is “Bagghi” and in Azerbaijan “Agajly”. The composition of the center field the “Agajly” carpet consists largely of one or several trees and bushes, and most likely in rare cases – of a cluster of trees. The trees are of different appearance. In ancient times such compositions were because of some legendary events, love scenes, mythological and sometimes even religious and fanatical plots. The weeping willow was a symbol of love, the oak shows strength and courage, and the pomegranate personifies abundance and luck. You can almost find this type of design in Qum, Tabriz, Isfahan and also Kashan.

Subject Carpets 

While the carpets with abstract patterns obviously prevail, there were subject carpets as well. The most ancient of them is by Nizami, the outstanding Iranian poet of the 12th century, whose work is an inexhaustible source of inspiration, not only for numerous miniature painters but for the carpet art as well. Seasons constitute the most favorite carpet subjects. Normally, they form the background for the famous Oriental buildings, including forts, palaces and mosques, temples – the nature blossoms and withers but the stones remain intact. Khosrau, Farhad, Shirin, Bahrām Gōr, Iskander, Layla and Majnun – these are the famous characters of Ferdosi, Nizami and Fizuli stories, as well as scenes from their poems, which are often depicted in the carpets. These styles remind you of the miniatures due to the painters of the Tabriz school flourishing at the time of the Safavids.

On the other hand, the subject carpets have various topics. Most of all being those of hunting and animals, literature plots and religious themes. One of the traditional subjects is the image of Omar Khayam with his sweetheart. By virtue of the specific language of the miniature painting the carpet composition conveys the spirit and essence of Khayam’s poetry, and it does it with a great realistic force. The carpet bears the couplets and quatrains, verses and sections from the poems by Ferdosi, Saadi, Hafez, and also Sheikh Attar.
