Uncommon exhibition catalog from contemporary fiber artist recreations of decorative felt cloaks traditionally worn by Iranian shepherds. The cloaks are made from fleeces sourced in the foothills of the Zagros Mountains and produced by hand felting methods in workshops in Borujerd and Khorramabad. The designs were inspired by the Turkic weaving traditions Ghezelayagh witnessed in western Iran.
