The name Teheran (Tehran in English), as well as the small, radiant flowers, indicates that the pattern is an interpretation of a Persian carpet. The lobed leaves in a variety of colours are reminiscent of the plant dye colours madder, wild mignonette and indigo. Teheran was designed in the 1940s, but wasn’t printed until 1991.
The placement of the pattern may vary from the one in the picture.
