The Bahtiyari are a tribal confederacy of nomadic peoples in the central eastern part of the Zagros Mountains in Iran.A Bahtiyari woman's status depended on her skill as a weaver with the important test on her wedding day, when weavings of highly decorated camel, donkey, salt and tent bags, made for her dowry, were displayed.This piece was made for her marriage and the motifs and designs represent her hopes and wishes.

What People Say - 

 

Fabulous Collection

One of the most fascinating,entertaining and educational carpet experiences I've ever had.Ruth has a fabulous collection of rugs and kilims and it's clear that she loves them all. She knows the story behind each one and enthusiastically shares the background about the weaver and the meaning of the work.

Ruth is very welcoming and there was never any pressure to buy.

I did take home a couple of lovely pieces and I will definitely return.  I highly recommend her shop !
