If you want to spent lots of money, the Tabrizi carpets are among the finest in the world, and you will find masterpieces in shops and inside the Bazaar. Tabrizi rugs are among the most decorative rugs and frequently use colors like pink, red and cream. Rugs here are about 50% less than what you pay in the West, but you can typically only take 2-3 rugs back to your home country without paying a customs fee.

1. Tableau carpet
- Works of art
- Characterized by their deep pile, close weave, fine yarns, subtle patterns, rich colors and fast dyes.
- Knotted by hand and cut with a knife at the desired length.
The construction of a rug or carpet determines its surface appearance.1. Pile – soft, velvety, raised surface produced by making yarn loops on the body of the material.
a) Cut Pile - produced by shearing the loops and untwisting the yarn to achieve the plush effect.
b) Uncut Pile - retains the yarn loops for a pebbly, harder texture
c) Combination Cut and Uncut Pile – uses both types of pile
finishes to create interesting textures and appealing patterns
d) Sculptured Pile - produced by fastening the yarn loops at
different heights so that patterns may be formed.
2. Flat – designates a rug or carpet without pile that has the same surface texture on both sides and that is reversible.
