As Tabriz boasts probably the longest and the richest heritage of Persian carpet weaving, authentic Persian beautiful rugs coming from this weaving center stand among the greatest and the most diverse in the world. The history of carpet manufacturing in Tabriz reaches back to the 16th century when the region was ruled by the Safavid dynasty. Due to an exceptionally long existence of the weaving center, creations from Tabriz are hard to set apart from other Persian carpets in terms of designs, motifs and colorations. Over the years, Tabriz antique kilim rugs have absorbed the features of practically all weaving schools, together with the influences from other cultures and countries dealing with the production of carpets that came along trade routes with merchants and travellers.
