This text explores one of the most ancient crafts in the world. Beginning with the discovery of the oldest complete rug which has been dated to the 5th century BC, the reader is led through the weaving history of the nomadic peoples of Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey, the Caucasus and Central Asia, right up to the present day. Each chapter introduces a different group of tribes, their carpets, rugs, kilims and utilitarian bags attributed to their weavers.The book is both a celebration of the woven legacy left by the tribes and a tribute to the skill and artistry of the women who created these wonderful works of tribal art.
