Hi Patrick
Something similar occured to me in Tehran during one of my many trips to Iran.Although I knew there was no weaving tradition in the capital, one day a friend of mine told me about a master weaver working near the Bazaar. I rushed to visit him. In a very modest house, with very weak light, an old man was weaving a splendid rug.Immediatly my attention was caught by the fact he was working with the tipical Tabriz hooked knife.He answered my question with an hardly understandable "farsi" full of Turquish words. Although from Azeri origin his family moved to Tabriz when he was very young. He later settled down in Tehran where he kept weaving as he learnt in his youth. The piece on the loom was the finest woollen Tabriz I ever seen around 8.000 knots per square decimetre.
