The Art of Oriental Rugs – A Weaver’s Perspective

I’ve written a book I wish I had when I first started in the rug business. This work is the result of three and a half years of research. It is intended for all levels of knowledge about hand-made rugs made in Iran (Persian*). Although the weaving principles are universal, the main focus is about the beauty and craftsmanship of Iranian weavers.
