Tabriz 40 Mahi


Map Tabriz Iran

Origin: Iran Tabriz

Iran Tabriz. North-west of Iran, in Azerbaijan province, near the Russian border and Turkish city of Tabriz remained for centuries one of the most important centers of Persia, and in the thirteenth century It was the capital of the empire of the Mongols.

 

Features:

This is the classic rug with a central medallion which is preferred, but there are also carpets with figurative scenes, such as hunting scenes.

These carpets are knotted in the Turkish knot or Ghiordes (unlike the Safavid era, where we used the asymmetrical or Persian knot). There are six standard grades of Tabriz: 25, 30, 35, 40, 50, 60, these numbers corresponding to the number of knots in a punzeh (7 cm). Quality 35, for example, corresponds to 2500 knots/square decimeter that is to say, 35:7 = 5 knots per inch, giving 25 knots per square centimeter and 2500 knots/square decimeter. Common sizes are sedjadeh (prostration, size 180x120cm +- Turkey, also used in the province of Hamadan and Tabriz) and large formats from 200 x 300 cm.

Warp and cotton weft, double for the weft.
The woolen Medium height or extremely short pile can be accented with natural silk to animates the scene. The regional wool who is particularly strong and rough.
At the beginning of the century, rare specimens, among the most beautiful Persian carpets were knotted in silk.

Note:

Among the various productions Persian carpets from Tabriz have played a very important role. It is indeed in this town that the first carpets were executed for export. The ingenious traders in the city, which since the mid-nineteenth century, shipped in Istanbul antique rugs they had collected one by one into the homes of notable Persian, realizing that the demand was much higher than the offer, decided from the role of simple merchants to producers. Hence the creation of the first workshops where knotted carpets in the measurements and the color demanded by the European merchants. There may also be the reason for the Tabriz not distinguished by a particular color.

Nous venons de recevoir les 6 petits tapis. Nous sommes très très contents puisque c'est exactement ce que nous cherchions depuis des années. Nous étions encore, mercredi, aux Galeries à chercher en vain ces petits tapis quand mon mari s'est exclamé : "Mais pourquoi ne demandes-tu pas cela à nos amis Belges!" Idée lumineuse, la preuve ! J'aurais dû l'avoir moi-même plus tôt. Comme quoi il faut écouter son mari...de temps en temps LOL. Encore tous nos remerciements et à une autre fois. Passez un bon WE. Avec toute notre sympathie. Christine et Jacques Gaboyer.
