Hi Patrick,

Gleaning from the few rugs that show up as Kurmanji, Kelardasht and Mazandaran on an internet search, it does not appear to have supported a substantial rug weaving industry.
That observation begs the larger question we may be asking here, i. e., whether the collective information out there is reliable.

Which does mean that something like the little brown bag could easily have been woven there, hiding out surreptitiously amongst the cotton-single-wefted crowd like a wolf in sheeps clothing.

Still searching for a definitive attribution....
BTW, good luck looking. I take it as given there are many wolves in sheeps' clothing lurking in NW Iran. More power to them, too!!
