A Tabriz rug/carpet is a type in the general category of Persian carpets from the city of Tabriz, the capital city of East Azarbaijan Province in the northwest of Iran totally populated by Azerbaijanis. It is one of the oldest rug weaving centers and makes a huge diversity of types of carpets. The range starts at Bazaar quality of 24 raj (Number of knots per 7 cm of the widths of the rug) and on up to the incredibly fine 110 raj. Raj is the units of knot density (it shows the fitness of the rug which based on the number of strings used for the foundation of the rug. Strings materials are usually made of cotton or silk which is used for very fine rugs).

Tabriz has one of the most diverse displays of designs from medallion, Herati/Mahi, to figural, pictorial, and even 3-d shaped & Benam.

For generations, the famous manufacturer Benam in Tabriz belonged to one of the most respected workshops in Persia. The elementary color which you would call nude in fashion is as rare as a rose diamond in carpets. The unnoticeable color gradient at the edge of the middle to the inner part shows the amazing expert skills. This results in a three-dimensional effect which brings the middle to create a good contrast with the border.
