This is a silk and gold thread version of a Tabriz style rug. Tabriz, located to the north-west, is Iran's second oldest city and has been at the center of the rug-making world for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years. Most Tabriz rugs have powerful reds or blues with contrasting ivory background. Tabriz is the host to some of the most beautiful rugs in the world and can have the price tag to match. In general the knots are fairly dense. The foundation is normally cotton with a wool pile in most cases. The popularity of Tabriz rugs dictates that all ranges of sizes, shapes, qualities and materials will be used. However, in general a good Tabriz rug will be of a high standard, medium to large in size and made with fine, soft wool. [ref. Dr Reza Cheshmehdoost]
For the best fit under a rug, we cut the pad 3 inches shorter on each dimension, so that it lays nicely over th edges. Please choose the pad size closest to your rug size or just slightly larger, and we will cut it to match the rug in your order.
