South East Persia
Kerman was bypassed by Genghis Khan and other Hordes and so has a long unbroken weaving tradition.
Some old Bazaaris proclaim Kerman Carpets the best in all Persia.
Circa 1925 - Middle of the famous "Shawl Period" of the Kerman carpet. A later cartouche woven in, announcing the new owner: Fascinating look into conservative Persian culture.
