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 northwest Iran. Tabriz is one of the oldest rug weaving centers and makes a huge diversity of 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 is usually cotton or silk which are for magnificent 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 compositions. 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’s 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 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 the 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:
