Pateh (Persian: پته‎‎, IPA: pæte; also Romanized as pateh) is an Iranian traditional needlework folk art. It originated in and is largely associated with Kerman province, where it is produced by women. A wide piece of wool fabric (ariz) is needleworked with colored thread. Pateh needlework is done in silk and with flourish paisley pattern; popular designs include the cypress tree and the sun, both traditional pre-Islamic Persian symbols
