Note:  This is a highly intricate all-over Tabriz floral design on a rare and sought after ebony background. The expression "all-over" is used to refer to rugs where a pattern is repeated throughout the rug. The advantage to this type of pattern is that furniture can be placed anywhere on the rug without interrupting the design. This lovely piece is masterfully hand woven, knot by knot, and has about 160 knots per square inch. It takes a master weaver over three years to weave and create this highly intricate and captivating piece. The baby lamb's wool used in weaving this rug is of the rarest and softest quality, to the point that it feels like velvet to the touch.
