antique bread sofreh qashqa'i tribes fars province southwest persia

Antique Bread Sofreh, Qashqa'i Tribes, Fars Province, South-West Persia.



Item Ref


This beautiful bread sofreh was woven by Qashqa'i nomads around 1900. Bread sofreh were used for kneading the dough in the preparation for making bread. They were generally caked in flour and until washed, it was often difficult to see colour and design. Completely utilitarian, this sofreh has a gorgeous madder-red field and multi-coloured border. Such pieces represented the true 'art of the nomad'.
Size: 1.24m x 1.14m (4' 1" x 3' 9").
Viewing by appointment only.
