After the foundation of the Safavid dynasty, trade experienced a boom in the first quarter of the eleventh century AH due to their political ties and measures to bring the trade routes under their control. Therefore, textile industry gradually reached its pinnacle thanks to Safavid support. Among the Iranian cities, Yazd became such a seat of this industry that a royal agent called Kerk-e Yarāq was appointed to provide the textiles requested by the royal family and aristocracy.
