About the Item

This Persian Haji Jalili Tabriz carpet created circa 1870 consists of a cotton warp and weft, hand-knotted wool pile and organic vegetal dyes. It is an exceptionally Fine example from the master artist and weaver Haji Jalili, and was crafted using his own signature wool and dyes. While the coloration may look simple upon first glance, it actually consists of a complex combination of earth tones based on the rule of seven. That is, there are seven different shades of brown, seven of beige, seven of pale green, and so on. It is extremely challenging for a weaver to work with colors that are so similar and yet still be able to distinguish among them, especially while working with such fine woolen yarns. The resulting piece is one of amazing dimension and timeless beauty. The tree of life illustration, amid Cyprus trees, roses and stylized peacocks, is Classic yet unique. This carpet is truly a piece of history. The size is 7'7" x 11'9" and it is in excellent condition. Orley Shabahang takes pride in selecting and curating the finest vintage and antique carpets, ensuring that the preservation of this ancient art form will endure for generations to come.
