Warp and weft: cotton, pile: wool

A replica of the Safavid dragon and cypres carpets made in the workshops of PETAG, a German company that was active in and around Tabriz from 1911 till WWII. The German company Petag, short for Persische Teppich AG, was founded in Berlin in 1911. Under the inspiring leadership of Heinrich Jacoby a large workshop opened up in Tabriz (North-West Iran). The Petag-rugs can easily be recognized by the shintamani-sign that is knotted in each piece
