TRIBAL EYE: Woven Gardens

This is a wonderful video about Persian carpets called "Woven Gardens". If you love weaving, carpets and dyeing you will enjoy this video that was part of the BBC television series "Tribal Eye" hosted by Sir David Attenborough. Of all the individual videos in this series this is my favorite.

It is about the nomadic Qashqai tribe of Iran and the tribal art of carpet-making in Persia and the distinctive patterns of the different clans and tribes. So get make yourself comfortable, get popcorn and something to drink, the video is 49 minutes long.

Hi
I hope you don't mind that I shared the link to your blog in my blog. I absouletly loved your video by David Attenborogh about Qashqai nomads and I also did a trip to the mountains in Shiraz in search of nomads and I have written about it in my blog. You are welcomed to have a read of it on:
