Quchan is the place, Kurds are the group of farmers who grow this lustrous wool. Originally a martial tribe, 300 years ago they were given land in this area of NE Persia by Shah Abbas to stop the incursions of the Turkomans.
The great rug weaving of the 17th - 20th centuries has come to an end. These days they farm crops and sell the wool so to find a lustrous old rug in good condition is a real pleasure.
We offer this handsome rug near to a local Iranian price.
