Gulbayi Surushi gave this cloth to Namgamah Dawlat Rustam Farshid as a gift. According to Shahnaz Shahzadi, it was made with a weaving machine called “Kar and Chalah.” This method involved a hole being dug in the room and the threads being spun after the wool was combed and dyed. The cloth was then woven using these threads.
