The Safavid Indigo design reproduces a leather filigree pattern incorporating hand-tooled motifs, retaining the elegance and style of the Islamic Golden Age. Originally released in a classic brown leather look, this new deep blue color scheme pays tribute to the darkest tone of Persian Blue. This indigo hue was a popular color used in the art and architecture of the artistic period.
Associated with this era of artistic excellence, Persian Safavid-style designs represented a high point in the art of the book. These bindings often feature centralized designs of medallions, quadrants, plant and animal motifs, pentagonal flap closures, and elaborately decorated “doublures” (interior covers), along with exquisite creations in cut-out leather, colored papers, and gilding. Above all, symmetry is the hallmark of this style. The original binder of this particular design used reddish-brown goatskin, real gold, lacquer, and paint to achieve balance in his creation.
Though the rule of the Safavids came to an end in 1736, they left a great and lasting legacy by reviving and establishing Persia as both an economic and artistic stronghold. Amid the many jewels of this ancient period and culture, decorative bookbinding shines particularly bright.
