This design has been used since thousands of years on precious carpets and other works of art.

This plant-like curved pattern has probably found its way into the Persian art from the Arabic art. The Persian word for Arabesque (Eslimi) has probably been derived from the word Eslimi meaning bud. It may possibly be a variation of the word Eslam that stands for the religion of Islam. One of the most famous types of this pattern is the Dahan Azhdari found in abundance in the Bijar carpet.
