Mazandaran Kilims Exhibit – From the time they first became known to the West in the late 1990’s, the antique Persian Mazandaran Kilims have experienced a tremendous growth in popularity. Traditionally utilitarian pieces woven for everyday use, these unique kilims are characterized by a stark, minimalist design aesthetic. Soft colors and stripes appear frequently, but a deep diversity of forms and designs make each Mazandaran kilim unique.

Much like the paintings of the great artists of the twentieth century – figures such as Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, and Ad Reinhardt – the kilims of Mazandaran are tantalizing compositions, the minimalism of which is deeply alluring – a quality that has been described as evoking “the hidden nature of the divine.”

Partly because of the similarity in appearance between Mazandaran kilims and modern minimalist painting, there is great demand for such pieces. As such, modern manufacturers who churn out reproductions on a mass scale have sprung up in large numbers. Naturally, such reproductions lack the cultural authenticity that make Mazandaran kilims unique.

A genuine Mazandaran kilim is hand woven with wool local to the area, and hand dyed with vegetable dyes made with local materials. They are unique, one of a kind pieces that were woven to be used around the home, as blankets, and for other uses. Part of the appeal of genuine Mazandaran kilims is their traditional role within Mazandaran society.
