Tabriz Aria Khoi rug

Tabriz is one of the main centres of rug manufacturing in Iran. Geographically, it is located in the north western part of the country, at the foot of the Sahand mountains, at an altitude of 1,348 m, close to the border with Turkey and 150 km away from the border with Azerbaijan. The manufacturing of carpets in this town follows ancient traditions, and, in addition, thanks to the various influences it has received due to its geographical location, there is a great amount of variety in the way the carpets of Tabriz are decorated. Also from a qualitative point of view, Tabriz rugs go from rougher rugs with unrefined knotting to masterpieces that express the highest summits reached by this extraordinary form of craftsmanship.
