Shahsavan rugs and woven articles represent as extraordinarily rich contribution to the Iranian textile tradition, yet until recently these pieces have been little recognized in Iran and virtually unknown elsewhere. This comprehensive volume presents for the first time the depth and variety of Shahsavan work. The author provides a stimulation text, beginning with the historical and geographical background of the Shahsavan, followed by chapters on design and symbols as well as the changes in methods of weaving brought on by the progressive contact of the tent-dwelling tribes with modern urban ways of life.

AS IS! Please see photos. More photos available upon request.
