    description: <div class="description"> This colorful, robust pattern features spirited Iranian golden lions, traditional symbols of royalty, amid large palmette leaves on vines that repeat, facing alternate directions in an asymmetrical Chinese-inspired layout. The regular repetition of the design indicates that it was influenced by <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">silk</u> patterns that were preset on large drawlooms, whereas variations in the motifs and colors confirm it was woven by hand in the <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">tapestry</u> technique. The pattern was created with <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">silk</u> thread in 13 rich colors and gold thread on parchment strips wrapped around a yellow core for increased visibility. This luxury fabric served as a container, most likely for imperial correspondence, a forerunner of paper envelopes today.</div>
