Termeh is a nice cloth which is woven since Safavid era in Iran. There is an argument between researchers about its origin .Some of them believe that termeh has been made in Kashmir and then brought to Iran. Others say that Iranian have been the innovators of weaving termeh and this material has been taken in to concentration like other handicrafts in other parts of world (Kashmir: historical region divided between India and Pakistan) But it is a real fact that Iranian termeh in comparison with what ever produced in Kashmir is much better and it has different coloration and designs.
The only reason that made the Kashmir famous, is using a kind of string which is produced by wild goat’s wool.Besides,the main place where it lives is Himalaya mountain range located north of India. So Kashmir termeh weaves have had more availability to it while Iranian had to use fleece. In the past, the first step in termeh weaving was preparing its raw materials. So it was very important to be careful while preparing wool, washing and drying it. Weaving termeh needs a good wool which has tall fibers.
