Description & Technical information

Many Kurds live in Eastern Iran in the Khorassan province. The style of their work is easy to identify. In the area of Gooshang they produce supple and rather coarse village rugs. Red is the main colour. Geometrical patterns remind of the Caucasus but there is undeniably an influence from the Baluchi and the Turkoman tribes.
