Fine Persian Tabriz Silk and Wool 220 X 147 cm (TAB936)
Size: 220 X 147 cm
In Tabriz, one of the most important landmarks are the bazaars from the 15th
century, since trade has always been of great importance in Tabriz. Indeed,
its geographical position meant that for a long time goods exported from Iran
to Europe went via Tabriz, and the revival of the carpet industry in the 19th
century is due largely to Tabriz merchants.
There are now a huge variety of carpets made in Tabriz, from extremely fine
to very coarse pieces. The weavers have great skill, and are aided by a hook-
like implement, which they use instead of the fingers for tying knots. The
warps and wefts are cotton, the pile wool, often with highlights of silk in the
finer pieces. The colours of the finer carpets are delicate and refined. The
coarsest qualities are brightly coloured and rarely exported. A wide variety of
designs are seen: copies of classical designs, re-workings of old motifs, and
pictorial or figurative treatments. The most famous weaver was Hajj Jalili, who
worked at the turn of the century.
