Description: Tribal Rugs: Treasures of the Black Tent is an exploration of one of the most ancient crafts of the world. Beginning with the discovery of the oldest complete rug from the 5th Century BC, the reader is led through the weaving history of the nomadic peoples of Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey, the Caucasus, and Central Asia, right up to the present day. Each chapter introduces a different group of tribes and illustrates the rugs, carpets, kilims and utilitarian bags attributed to their weavers.

Tribal weaving, together with the use of natural vegetable dyes, began its swift decline around the turn of the century under the twin assaults of civilization and commercialism. This book is both a celebration of the woven legacy left by the tribes and a tribute to the skill and artistry of the women who created these wonderful works of tribal art. It is hoped that is will provide an introduction to the novice and excite the more knowledgeable to further study. The book is illustrated throughout with examples of the finest work of each tribe, the majority of the illustrations being preciously unpublished.
