More about the provenance Tabriz | Iran

Tabriz is the capital city of the province of Azerbaijan in North-West Iran. The city was founded by the Harun al-Rashid approx. in the year 800. Since the 17th century Tabriz is probably the most significant carpet-production-center of Iran. The finer Tabriz production is considered the best Persian productions in terms of quality and design.

The special wool with which this Oriental rug has been made is called "Kork" wool. The Persian word "Kork" means "soft down". This expression is used for particularly fine and soft wool for very high quality rugs, especially for expensive rugs made in esteemed manufactures like e. g. in Kashan. It is common to add the word "Kork" to the provenance name as in e. g. "Kashan Kork".
