About the piece

It is quite rare to find a 100% silk Tabriz in such a beautiful and detailed design called Gonbad. The design is inspired and taken from the ceiling of Persian old palaces and shrines where the ceiling is totally covered with small colourful fine mosaics featuring an infinity. The number of knots is approximate 700,000 knots per square meter where both weft, warp and pile are made in high-quality silk. Tabriz is situated in the northwest of Iran close to Azerbaijan and the Turkish border. Tabriz carpets come almost exclusively woven on vertical looms from the city and their surroundings and woven by experienced weavers in private houses where often the proud weaver and designer weave his or her name on the carpet. The Turkish knot is almost always used (the population of Tabriz is Turkish by race and language). Tabriz carpets play a very important role in Persian carpet production. Tabriz rugs are amongst the most sought after rugs by Persians for their houses and interiors. Some of the most common designs are Mahi (Fish) taken from the Persian gardens. Other designs are floral, often with a central medallion. Some have more silk than others, and the finest are woven onto silk foundations (silk fringes).
