In the 12th century, the Tabriz rug became famous for its high level of craftsmanship with its simple and complex designs. These original Persian rugs were all woven in Tabriz. It is an ancient city located in north western Iran. Unlike the nomadic tribal rugs, Tabriz rugs are woven in rug-weaving centers in the city. Only the most talented weavers get to work in Tabriz. This is why Tabriz has a reputation for having some of the most sophisticated designs. At Ruby Rugs, our Tabriz rugs display a high knot count and have many unique designs including curve-linear and some geometric elements. Our Tabriz rugs range in color from soft tones to striking bolder tones. Fine handspun wool and natural dyes are found in these rugs.
