 Reserches about Hezar Jarib kilims  in a 4 days Trip to Mazandaran



(Haghighat Nomads)



On 16 Farvardin at 3:30 AM I start to drive to Mazandaran,I had some adress in Sari(Center of the province)and Gorgan.for some special type of kilims that cames to market recently.and many of persian experts do not know about them yet.
I wanted to buy some of these kilims sience a friend found them,and because of our friendship called me.
I was afraid may be they give me wrong information about place of origin ,way of usage,way of producing and so…
I decided before I go to buy in my way try to interview with some knowlegebel persons over there.I was in this thjoughts that I saw a Captain police officer in side of the road is looking for Taxi,now it was 6:00 AM.I stoped and he wanted to go to Sari,same place that I was going.
That place was a city called SAVAD KOOH and he was the chieff of the police station of that city and his homeland was a city called Sefid Pol in less than 20 Km after Savad kooh.
After greetings I immidiatly start to ask questions and really he was a nice man to answer pationtly.Behrooz sadeghi was his name.I asked questions from him,and then when  we arrive Sari he left me,I went to a Car wash,and over there there was a rich man(Expencieve car he had)Mr Mahmoodi.when we became familiour ,he was a business man in metal,Alominiom and…by the chance he was born in Kia sar,so his informations would be corect.
Offcourse at last both of these jentelmans were given same infoes.
1.Hezar Jarib
In year 61 hejri gamari(By Moon)when our third imam Hazzrate emam Hossein and 72 persons of his companions were marteired by Yazid in Karbala desert,from his familly only his 2nd son who was so sick,and the enemies thought he will die by his illness,remain alive.He was the shia ‘s 4th Imam,Hazrat e Sajjad who has a book about animals right.
Imam sajjad’s sun was ZEID,he wanted to fight with the regim of time ,for blod of karbala martaires,From this time a serious movement appiered by the name of Zeidiyeh.
No we do not want to talk about this movement but people of this movement select a Manountains in North of Iran to hide,because it as really hard to reach by Khalife(Arabic of King).
Now it seems why these nice kilims with about 200 years old,are coming to market recently in these days.It is fool of forest trees,when I was going to Alamdar deh,before Kiasar in a ground bad road,honestly I was abit frighten myself.I took an image and will show you.
Adress:From Tehran to sari ,after Savad Kooh,there is a small city I took imag ,called Sefid pole,There is a road from there to maountains to HEZAR JERIB Area.It is name of an area and also name of a village as well.
There are 8 till 10 villages there and the center of area is a village SANGELEH.
There is another road but too far to this area from SARI too.
After psassing Savad kooh and then Sefid pol,in our way to Sari,we see a small city called SHIER  GHAH ,there is a narrow way from this city to an area Called LAPOOR   or Lafoor  that they had the same types there.
In this area famous villages in producing this type are as:PASHA KALA-LAFURAK-Galesh kala –Asbu Kala and Naft chal.
In 75 kilometers from Sari there is a small city called KIA SAR,but it is common again to kia sar area,it is in a mountain and just has a bad road to SEMNAN or Damghan,other wise is a closed road.the important villages of here are:CHAHAR  DANGEH-CHALU-TUSEH-Manzel Darreh.
From Sari to GORGAN(center of Golestan province) very near we have a small city called GHALUGHAH,there is a better way from this to kiasar too that has Villages as here in the road:Ramedan-Gornam-Rish beneh-Param-Par  kala-Sorkh  geryeh-Parch-Samchul-Chalagdeh-Pitino-Niala-Roobar-Pajim-Sheikh  Mahalleh-Shirdari-Zelet.
From Kiasar to Damgan or Semnan city.
From a bad road to semnan we have some villages that are alone.from here forest start to disapper and slow slow we see desert.after 30 minutes or more driving in dry mountains in the left of the road ,we have a narrow road go till a this road we have villages:TAVAD-SHESHK-Mazdeh,Churat-ghale sar-Mal khast and finally OROST that I stay one night there,bought 2 kilims only.and took images.
They set the tool of weaving(Dar)vertical with 3 Geregereh or dook(tools that each colore of woll was on it)after weaving joined them
1.There was no carpet in old times they used felt(Namad)for covering ground sience it was too cold.Felts wools bothered the peopele to sleep or it’s wool joined to their dress,so used this kilim on the felts.
2.In the village in mountains witch are really coled even in spring that I went,because the haouses were made by wood,by hanghing this kilims wanted to make inside of home warmer also by its nice colores it was a type of decorating their home as well.

Ofcourse these two reasones belongs to kilims that are in 4 panels more than 10 Sq.m.

but there are small ones around 1-1.5 Sq.m in two panels that were used as a

bag that in persian we call it Boghche(put clean cloth in them when went to publice

bathroom) also may used under feet after taking this reason 2 panels and 3

panels that sized around 250X300 Cm are common

They are sheep wool on wool,100% natural colores
