Extant Textile Inspiration:
I am currently working on the draft for my pattern. I have chosen one element from a 8th C Syrian Damask and drafted it inside a circle because circle motifs are the most common element in Sasanian textile designs. After weaving my initial draft, I have also added some small motifs in the space between the circles as seems to have been done in other Sasanian textiles.
