Place of origin

Sofreh simply means cloth in Persian (Farsi). Sofreh were traditionally produced in different sizes for various tasks in the household. The Ardi sofreh or bread dough sofreh (Ardi means flour in Farsi) are usually rather small and square and were made for storing bread. The slightly larger squares from a size of about 150 cm x 150 cm are called Roukorsi or Sofreh Roukorsi, which translates as "cloth over the oven". Longer, narrower sofreh served as tablecloths.


The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Sofreh. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It blends in fantastically with any surroundings and subtly complements the interior design of a room..

The straight stripes of this Sofreh organize and structure the pattern.
br /> The embellished edging (border) forms a beautiful contrast to the center and creates a transition at the edge of the rug.

In the pattern of this Sofreh, the diamonds stand out in particular. Diamonds are a rhombus standing on a point, the four equal sides of which may be jagged, stitched or hooked. The diamond is one of the oldest basic forms in oriental rugs. It has a symbolic meaning in the Islamic world: it symbolizes the immortality of the soul. It is therefore very often found as a filler motif.

The background of this Sofreh is beige. The border features dark blue, light brown and dark red.


This Sofreh has been made by hand from wool.

The colors of this carpet change depending on which side it is viewed from. It depends on whether the light falls on the line or against the line of the pile. We have therefore taken pictures of this rug from different perspectives.
