Persian textiles

A worker stands in front of an Iranian handmade carpet at a carpet workshop in Kashan, 240 km (149 miles) south of Tehran November 13, 2011. Persian carpet weaving is a historical part of Iranian culture, dating back to as far as approximately 2,000 years ago. Persian carpets can be mostly divided into three size groups: large (3x4 metres), medium (2x3 metres) and small (1x1.5 metres), which is called Ghaliche. For a larger 12-square-metre wool carpet, it would take about six months to complete if two workers work on it. The price of each carpet is set by officials from Iran's national carpet company after examining each completed work.[Photo/Agencies]
