Kashan was one of the main and important centers of tiling in the Middle Ages of Islam (Ilkhanids). According to the literature, the tiles made in this city have been exported to many parts of Iran and other regions. Through field activities in the Aveh region, the authors have obtained findings from this art and craft in the Imamzadeh of Fazl ibn Sulayman Aveh. A comparative study between the designs used in the decoration of this building with the Luster tiles of Kashan can be very important in obtaining the cultural identity of Aveh region. The main question of the research is how much similarity can be seen between the decorative patterns in the Luster tiles of these two places? Is Aveh region a subregion of Kashan tile industry and art? Or should it be considered as an independent center in the tile industry? The hypothesis of the research is that in terms of form and type of decorative patterns, similar and different points can be seen between them. Luster tiles and the existence of differences in the design of their decorative motifs can indicate an independent center in the creation of such works of art. As a result, it can be said that another style called Aveh style in making Luster tiles of the medieval Islamic period, should be among the other styles of this decorative art.
