Tabriz Carpets : The city of Tabriz is the capital of Azerbaijan province in Northwestern Iran. Until the end of the caravans era it was the most important centre for trade and carpet weaving. Tabriz supplied the West with masterpieces that were made by renowned and very capable weavers. Their high quality of Tabriz carpets made them renowned in world markets. Many workshops where created where hand-woven carpets with very high density knots and high quality materials where woven. Silk and fine quality wool establish these carpets as very high class. No other city in Persia produced such large quantity or variety of carpets. With or without a medallion, their designs are full of imagination and individuality. Flowers, scenes, stanzas of poems often decorate them. Their predominant colors are beige, blue and red.
Classic Carpets: Carpets that are woven in urban centres in fixed workshops and looms(as opposed to nomads). Their designs are first done on paper by carpet designers. These designs are strictly conducted by the weaver during the manufacturing. Even in these carpets, though there may be slight variations in weaving.
Abrash: Due to the different amount of grease in the wool and the added salt during the process of dyeing, the wool has got a varying colour absorbance. This is not very visible before weaving. During the weaving though, lines of the same colour are formed in the carpet. This is called Abrash (which in Farsi means little cloud) and it shows that the wool was not manufactured using chemical means and marks the naturalness and authenticity of the carpets. Examples
