Abstract :
This article discusses ten pieces of brocade now housed in the Islamic Period Museum in Tehran, Iran, dating from the Safavid period (early sixteenth to middle of the eighteenth centuries). The ten samples were selected on the basis of their different styles of decoration and their weaving techniques, in an attempt to develop a model for the classification of these textiles and to determine the location of their production.
