Tasheer Carpets are among Eisa Bahdori’s works in carpet designing, which enjoy special structural and visual features. These carpets illustrate a single theme havingbeen designed and woven in three different ways, which evidences the capabilities of their creative designer. Therefore, this article aims at the visual analysis of Bahdori’s trilogy through a comparative approach. The research method is descriptive-analytical, and the data have been collected through field study (interviews and photography of works) as well as library study. The purpose of the study is to answer this main question: what are the commonalities and differences of the structural features of designs and patterns in Eisa Bahadori’s carpet trilogy concerning the theme of Tasheer?
 The results indicates that a repetition of a number of motifs, along partial similarities in rotation of arabesque, is common in all three carpets; among these motifs, one can note the presence of animals (ibex, deer, tigers, lions, and bears), birds (pheasants, humpbacks, and falcons),mythological animals (Simurgh and dragons), vase designs, and combat scenesbetween Simurgh and pheasant. In addition to these commonalities, the structures of carpets in terms of the presence or absence of toranj and sar-toranj as well as their shape (oval, circle), the coloring of the background and borders, and even the way the creatures and vegetal elements are pictured have their unique visual values. ​​Such visual features distinguish each carpet from the other, despite their single theme of Tasheer, and reveal a process of growth in the designing of these three carpets
