Sofrehs take their name from the Farsi (Persian) word for cloth and are used for several functions connected with preparing and eating food. Eating cloths are normally referred to simply as sofrehs and vary enormously in size-from small, rectangular mats for personal use to extremelly long, narrow runners for communal eating.
This simple sofreh draws attention to the central motive framed in a rectangle with the date in the Persian calendar of 1378, equivalent to 1998. A pretty kilim.
