The weaver would use a drawing know as a ‘cartoon’ to know exactly were to place each floral motif and each intricate knot. A remarkable skill, woven by the best weavers in Tabriz, Iran.
Rugs and carpets have been made in Tabriz in Persia for centuries, but it has only been a major producer since the mid 19th century. They still weave marvellous fine silk carpets in Tabriz today such as this fine modern example. Woven with such intricacy using silk to highlight the beautiful designs.
