Termeh is among the old traditions of fabric producing in Iran which is mainly produced in Yazd province and is known for its high weaving quality and elegant look. Termeh or Tirmeh is an Indian term which referred to the pattern of a curved cedar. The art of making Termeh goes back to 400 years ago, when it was mostly produced by Zoroastrian for making special ceremonial dresses such as Gabri trousers and wedding dresses. Material used in weaving Termeh is mainly from viscos fabric, which is of organic source and therefore nonallergic.
American archaeologist and historian of Persian art, Jay Gluck in his book A Survey of Persian handicraft, described Termeh and Kashmir shawls as luxuries fabrics popular among upper class women during Victorian era in the UK.
Today, Termeh is very popular among Iranians and non-Iranians and is designed in different colours, patterns and shapes and they can be used as table cloth, table runner, and prayer mat.
