Felt-making ; Very old industry in Iran

Felt-making is a very old industry that nobody knows about the date and place of its emergence, but the oldest examples found in Pazyryk Valley belong to the Achaemenid period.Felt is the simplest type of flooring and its production does not require any special device.Felt is a textile material that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing animal hairs together.The main material used in felt is the white, brown, or black sheep wool. However, sometimes a combination of them or some painted wool is used for the background of the textile.The production of a piece of felt usually takes one day, and the felt-workers often work in double-person teams.
