Tabriz rugs are named after the town of Tabriz, in northwestern Iran. Tabriz celebrates a long tradition of rug weaving, though today, the rugs are made in many places other than their namesake city. Tabriz rugs vary greatly in design and color. They may have vibrant hues or subtle neutral tones. They may have a central medallion, a floral pattern, a hunting scene, or any other design known to Persian rugs. What sets Tabriz rugs apart is their quality; the best being hand woven and hand knotted with silk and wool pile.
