Design for Indo-Tafresh

Tafresh just cut down from the loom.

Back side of the New Tafresh rug.
This is the back view of the rug. With the pile being unshaved it can be difficult to really make out the design completely. Looking at the back gives you a better idea of what the finished product will look like when completed.
Weaver is running wefts
Here you can see a weaver working on our CUSTOM Indo-Tafresh rug. He is adding a weft across the rug and packing it down.
Tafresh is 100% Complete
About the Design: This incredible rug is now complete and waiting to be imported into the United States from India. The rug is approximately 4'x6', hand-knotted with semi-worsted wool on a cotton foundation. The design comes from the Persian village of Tafresh in the Markazi Province in Iran. The design is known as a clock-face design which is believed to originate from the Zoroastrian religion, representing the sun.
Our goal in re-creating this rug was to capture the quality and character of semi-antique and antique rugs from the village of Tafresh in Iran. This design isn't as commonly made in Iran as it once was. The designs have been simplified over time.
