Backstory to Stylish Pak-Afghan Tabriz:

#31310 Fine Tabriz 9 x 11.3 Pak-Afghan

#31310 Fine Tabriz 9 x 11.3 Pak-Afghan

The stylish finely woven Tabriz hanging in WINDOW RIGHT measuring 9 x 11.3 brings warmth and a classic style to a space.  This piece was hand-knotted in Attock, northern Pakistan by 4 Afghani Turkmen over a period of 6-7 months using handspun vegetally dyed local wool. The artist’s simple color palette of madder red, cream, tan, navy and teal coupled with a sophisticated pattern brings just the right amount of ease and intensity to create a classic timeless design.

Historically, Tabriz, capital of the province of Iranian Azaerbaijan, has been one of the most important centers for the production of Oriental carpets. Their designs have a mathematical precision that creates a perfect symmetry. This piece contains the classic design of a small diamond, which occupies the center and is surrounded by a series of concentric medallions.  The rich, red field’s floral vines appear as latticework and also define the alluring cream corner quadrants. The main navy colored border contains peonies, which represent power,  separated by a simple floral design, which brings in air and maintains a nice balance. The tan guard borders use of design and color are striking.

     The artist masterfully creates a work of art which implores you to slow down and enjoy the ”colors”. “Speed kills colour…the gyroscope when turning at full speed, shows up gray.” Paul Morand.
