Tabriz rugs are woven in workshops of Tabriz and its vicinity. Tabriz is the capital of Eastern-Azerbaijan province in northwest of Iran. Tabriz is one of the most important rug weaving centers in Iran. Although a variety of curvilinear designs are woven in Tabriz, geometric rugs can also be found. Tabriz rugs mostly use the symmetric (Turkish) knot. Tabriz designs are the most diverse designs of Iran. Tabriz weavers use many different Persian and universal designs and motifs in their weaving. Often rather than directly copying these designs, they use their own interpretations such as their interpretation of the herati medallion-and-corner of Bijar. Some of the designs and motifs used by the Tabriz weavers consist of shah abbasi medallion-and-corner, islimi medallion-and-corner, shah abbasi and islimi medallion-and corner, Koran medallion-and-corner, Sheikh Safi medallion-and-corner (a medallion surrounded by 16 leaf-like pendants with two lamps connected to the medallion ), paneled garden, vase, hunting, pictorial, prayer rug with lamps and/or columns, animal, scenery, tree, all-over boteh, all-over gul farangi, and all-over herati; the boteh, gul farangi and herati motifs can be seen in the medallion layout as well. The palette of Tabriz rugs is as diverse as the designs. Colors used can be very vivid or pastel depending on the market demand. A distinguishing characteristic of Tabriz rugs is the numerous colors used in one rug. One popular and expensive design is the finely woven, exceptionally detailed shah abbasi and/or islimi medallion-and-corner. These rugs are generally woven with silk foundation and wool pile with silk highlights. The common background and border colors used in this design are pink, peach, camel, beige, and ivory. Although the motifs are in variety of colors such as blue, green, yellow, orange, and lavender, often times the overall look of these rugs is pastel. Although pastel colors are frequently used, you can still find Tabriz rugs of this design with darker colors.
