Termeh (Persian: ترمه) is a type of Persian (Iranian) handwoven cloth, produced primarily in the Isfahan province. Currently, the Yazd Termeh has a reputation as being the most beautiful and most famous in the world. Yazd is the center of the design, production, and marketing of Termeh. Weaving Termeh requires a good wool with long fibers. Termeh is woven by an expert with the assistance of a worker called a Goushvareh-kesh. Weaving Termeh is a sensitive, careful, and time-consuming process; a good weaver can produce only 25 to 30 centimeters (10 to 12 in) in a day. The background colors used in Termeh are jujube red, light red, green, orange, and black. Termeh has been admired throughout history; Greek historians commented on the beauty of Persian weavings in the Achaemenian (532 B.C.), Ashkani (222 B.C.) and Sasanidae (226-641 A.D.) periods.
During the Safavid period (1502-1736 A.D.), zarbaf and Termeh weaving techniques were significantly refined. Due to the difficulty of producing Termeh and the advent of mechanized weaving, few factories remain in Iran that produce traditionally woven Termeh.
