They are linked and become containers. According to most researchers, the oldest objects of Iranian tapestry belong to the years 550 to 330 BC. M returns. The works found in “Duralurpos” show that in the years 330 to 224 AD. Also, the production of tapestry products in Iran has been very prosperous. filigree Also, the antiquity of this art can be seen in the works discovered from Susa, Hamadan and Ganjineh Jihun. (Arthur Upham Pope) in the book (Masterpiece of Iranian Art), while referring to goldsmithing and silversmithing in the years after the advent of Islam, he has mentioned a tapestry that was obtained from the region (Ray) and belongs to the 12th century AD


The reason why some objects were lost at that time was that unfortunately, most of the Iranian tapestry objects, especially those made of gold and silver, were melted down to reuse the metal, and only from the Qajar period, a number of Sarqalians came to this side. , glass clamps or trays in various sizes, earrings, small chests, etc., some of them are kept in domestic and foreign museums and some others are kept in private collections or with families. filigree Kari tapestry is popular nowadays mainly in the cities of Isfahan, Tabriz, Zanjan and Tehran

The largest part of the raw material of the tapestry is silver, which is provided by melting silver coins or worn silver dishes. The silver used in the tapestry has a specific grade, but usually 60 to 84 grade silver is used to make the handle or the base of the dishes. filigree We owe this art to artists who create beautiful and valuable works with very simple and basic tools and even lost some of their sight in this way. Natural wax, white alum, acid and sulfur ink form the rest of the consumables needed in the work tapestry. Tapestry tools are similar to goldsmith tools


filigree History of tapestry art in Iran

We do not have complete information about the history of Zanjan tapestry, but this beautiful art of the region is mentioned through the writings and tableaux of Sikhs who traveled with this region. According to the research conducted by archaeologists, the oldest objects that show the origin of the tapestry in Iran are related to the Achaemenid period. During the Sassanid period, metal and silversmiths made precious and beautiful dishes for the use and consumption of the elite classes of their society. And in some cases, filigree they decorated them with precious stones, which gave a special effect to the produced work

Unfortunately, during the Arab invasion, many of the works were looted because of their high price and lightness. In this period, there is not much evidence of those works of the mentioned historical period, and what has now been found by chance in areas such as Shush, Hamedan, Ganjineh Jihun, as a result of the efforts of archaeologists in the last few centuries, shows that the art of tapestry in Iran It goes back to BC because Professor Arthur Upham Pope, in the book Masterpieces of Iranian Art, while referring to goldsmithing and silversmithing in the years after the advent of Islam, talked about works of tapestry from the 12th century AD. During the Seljuk era, many of the producers of exquisite metal works were Khorasani filigree artists living in the east and northeast of Iran, some of whom left their homeland due to war and bloodshed and went to cities such as Zanjan, Borujerd, Hamedan, Tabriz, and especially Mosul


It seems that Khorasani artists popularized the art of metalwork, including tapestry, in Zanjan in 5 AH Since prehistoric times, the use of thin wires for the production of jewelry has been common and its use has gradually increased. Although it may not be possible to tell the basic ornaments of the tapestry, but you can see the techniques that make up the structure of the tapestry. According to most researchers, the history of this valuable art in our country dates back to 550 to 330 AD. It is related that during the mentioned years due to the popular use of expensive dishes by the rich classes, artisans and metal workers, especially goldsmiths and silversmiths, turned their attention filigree to making the dishes more beautiful and gave an ornamental look to the consumer products

are During the Achaemenid period, the use of thin wires and shaping them on another metal can be seen, but during the Parthian period, beautiful works have remained, which are very similar to today’s tapestry and have acquired a network shape. The perfection of tapestry art has progressed in all times, but not many works of tapestry have been seen during the Sassanid period. After the time of the Sassanids, a new period begins in the land of Iran, which is the arrival of Islam in our country. Right after the Sassanid era, that is, during the Seljuk dynasty, very beautiful works of tapestry ornaments can be seen, which proves the skill and experience of the artists


The existence of these works strengthens the suspicion that there was a tapestry in the Sassanid period, and maybe it filigree only went through a period of stagnation, or it was used as war booty during the Arab attack on Iran It must be said that the number and works left from that era are very few, because the tapestry objects are made of gold and silver and they can be melted down and used again, for this reason, those objects disappear over time. gone and many examples of tapestry from the old days have survived. After the Seljuqs and the rise of the Mongols and then the Timurids, due to the war and chaos in our country, few traces of these periods can be seen. Until the Safavid era, this art flourished again and a clear example of this art can be seen on the door of the Chaharbagh school in Isfahan by Abdul Latif Tabrizi and by the order of Shah Sultan Hossein. It seems that this is the first time that the tapestry has been used in an application other than ornaments and on a wider level, and it has reached its peak of mastery


filigree Isfahan tapestry

Shah Abbas transferred many Armenians from Jolfa, Azerbaijan to Isfahan, built an area called Jolfa, and began producing filigree metal artifacts, including tapestry belts got busy It can be said that the Safavid era is the first time that the tapestry was seen in Isfahan

With the invasion of Afghans to our country and the rise of the Afsharians and Zendians, this beautiful and lovely art has preserved its originality and over time its elegance and glory has increased and it has provided the necessary platform for the existence of beautiful works during the Qajar era. During the Qajar period, the works of Zanjani artists can be seen, and the remaining works, in addition to other practical ornaments, such as Qalamdan, Duat Dan, Sini, Sarghlian, etc. . . Is . Some people believe that since World War II, a number of Zanjani artists came to Isfahan and Tehran and transferred this art to other parts of Iran In Tehran, it is mostly in the form of jewelry, and in Isfahan, it is mostly in the manufacture of ornaments and silverware. However, the existence of the door of Chaharbagh school shows the presence of tapestry in the Safavid period in Isfahan, until during World War II, this art was fully used in Isfahan

The 3,000-year history of tapestry in Ardabil can be concluded from the works found around the tomb of Sheikh Safiuddin Ardabili that this art has a 3,000-year history in Ardabil.

Tapestry steps

To make tapestry objects, we must first prepare the tapestry tape. This strip is made of gold, silver or copper, filigree which in this case is made by passing silver and copper ingots or wire through the Hodeidah rolling machine. After making the tapestry tape, you can start making the tapestry container itself. In this first step, a rectangular metal plate is selected that is of opposite material to the functional wire and has different dimensions and sizes, and one surface of it is completely coated with wax, in such a way that a 3 to 4 mm thick layer of wax is left on the plate. After that, the mold cut in the shape of the desired product is placed on the copper plate, then a strip that is wider than the tapestry strip is passed around the mold so that it takes the shape of the mold and is placed inside the wax. . In the next step, Baha divides the next walls of the overall design and fills the middle surfaces with tapestry patterns that are already made by hand with a delicate tapestry tool, and in the final step, the patterns are made with very fine steel wires


They tie each other so that the shapes do not collide, filigree and then by melting the wax, they separate the skeleton of the tapestry from the bottom plate. This skeleton is placed on a flat surface and some solder, which is a mixture of brax and silver shavings, is poured on it and the gas flame is moved on it.
