Description:

Antique Persian Tabriz rug was hand knotted in Iran of 100% natural wool and has a cotton foundation. This rug is 70+ years old, has medium to low, wool piles and is made with beautiful colors and is in excellent condition for its age. This rug shows signs of abrash due to the use of old vegetable dyes. No holes or repairs, nice and soft. This rug was acquired from an established rug merchant. Clean and ready to be enjoyed. Recent embargoes by the U.S. against Iranian goods should cause the value of these rugs to increase.

  • Notes:
  • Tabriz rugs refer to a well-known design of Persian rugs from the city and surrounding area of Tabriz in northwest Iran. After Persian rugs became unavailable to Americans during the Islamic Revolution in the 1980s, India responded by producing increasingly better rugs. In 1980, the finest quality rugs produced in India were woven with 90 knots per square inch. Today Indian weavers make rugs with 240 knots per square inch and more. During the ’80s and ’90s, India established its capacity to make first-rate rugs with excellent materials. Most are in Persian designs, with good synthetic dyes and machine-spun wool. They are so successful, and in many cases such bargains, that they have become the staple fare of rug stores and department stores throughout America. At one time, there were only a handful of designs in which Indian carpets were woven, but today there are hundreds — so many, in fact, that I can only survey a fraction of them. Because so many businesses import mainstream Indian rugs, retailers rarely mention their names to customers. The mainstream Indian rugs, with knot counts of from nearly 100 to 200 or more per square inch, are so consistent that, for the consumer, choosing from among them will come down to a matter of common sense and personal taste.
