Traditional dyeing workshops still popular in Iran

August 9, 2019

Two Iranian men are preparing a traditional dye bath to color piles of wool yarns in a decades-old workshop in Tabriz, northwestern Iran, August 7, 2019. 

Tabriz was named the world city of carpet by the World Crafts Council in 2015. Its carpets usually show a medallion decorative scheme, ranging from a single medallion to the complexity of a star centerpiece with pendants and cartouches, reflected by quarter-medallions similarly elaborated in the corners of the field. 

Persian carpets are sought after internationally for their delicate designs and good quality.
