Tabriz has had a chequered history. It has been invaded by armies and devastated by earthquakes several times. It is situated in the north west of Iran. Rugs from Tabriz come in a great variety of designs, with many traditional motifs being borrowed from other areas. They have also created their own designs which are unlike those of other Persian rugs. Rugs with large central medallions surrounded by floral motifs are common, and hunting patterns are also found. Borders are always exquisitely composed. The main band normally repeats the ground motif. Herald designs are found, but are somewhat rare.
