Tabriz Northwest Iran

Very rarely can a carpet be ascribed to the virtually mythical Haji Jalili workshop with a relative degree of certainty, especially since these carpets were never signed or embellished with any sort of inscription. The signature style, however, lies in the highly refined palette consisting of a characteristic parchment ivory background punctuated by touches of light rust and teal blue. The high quality of weaving as well as the use of a lustrous pile renders it among the most elegant manifestations of the Persian carpet revival period.
