12 Days IRAN Carpet Tour

 

Carpet Weaving is a difficult art that requires patience. The first step of making a carpet is choosing a pattern. The patterns are drawn over graph paper, each graph cell represents a knot in the carpet and by coloring them in different colors, the artist creates the shapes. The patterns are drawn in half or quarter of the original size and the weaver will make the whole carpet based on that. The usual patterns used in these carpets are the same as those used in Isfahan, such as Flower Vases, Altar, Hunting, Animals, Arabesque pattern, and Lachak Toranj.
