old bread sofreh kamo central persia

Old Bread Sofreh, Kamo, Central Persia.



Item Ref



This stunning bread Sofreh was made in the village of Kamo around the early 20th century. The bread sofreh was a woven cloth on which the dough was kneaded. Such sofrehs were extremely minimalistic in design and reflects the individual primitive nomadic art of the weaver where she expresses her own thoughts without keeping to her tribe's rug designs. In need of a good wash, the colours on the natural undyed ivory sheep's wool are all vegetable. A rare find these days.
Size: 1.25m x 1.12m (4' 1" x 3' 8").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM516
