This antique hand knotted Persian Tabriz Rug is made from 100% wool; natural wool pile, a natural wool foundation and natural vegetable dyes. This antique rug features a geometrical pattern in jewel tones: rich reds, blues and terracotta and has a lovely patina thanks to its age.
This rug is in excellent condition for its age, it is circa 1950s (approx. 65 years old). Since the middle of the 19th century, Tabriz has lead a resurgence in Persian carpet weaving. With strict standards of craftsmanship and quality of materials used, Tabriz rug weavers produce tight densely-knotted structures and elaborate floral displays. Some of the finest workshop Tabriz rugs, woven exclusively for carpet aficionados among the nobility, are technical achievements unsurpassed by any other weavings of the 20th century. Like Kashan and Isfahan carpets, Tabriz rugs capture the sophistication and refinement of the classical Safavid Court carpets. Reflected in many fine examples of antique Tabriz carpets is this rich heritage of the elegant court tradition combined with subtle innovations inspired by western taste and artistry. The Tabriz rug weavers draw on a varied repertoire of delicate designs: multi-faceted flowerheads, subtle arabesques, lush vinery rendered in naturalistic detail, and precise allover “Herati” patterns, all woven in jewel-toned colors.
There are many benefits to natural wool rugs. Not only are they incredibly soft and comfortable, there is also the benefit of natural wool being fire retardant, eco-friendly and biodegradable. The biggest benefit of natural wool is to your health. Natural wool and dyes are very safe for children, asthma and allergy sufferers because wool rugs reduce the dust in the air to more than half of that found on hard surfaces. Wool is the best fibre for a rug because it is a natural fibre so if you have pets such as dogs or cats their hair does not stick to the rug, it actually repels it and pet hair can be removed very easily by vacuuming the rug.
