November 13, 2018

TEHRAN – A sales exhibition of rural and tribal rugs is underway at Tehran’s Sadabad Cultural-Historical Complex.

Handmade carpets, rugs, and pictorial rugs are sold by some 80 stalls from East Azarbaijan, Isfahan, Kerman, Fars, Golestan and Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari amongst other provinces, CHTN reported.

Organized by the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, the exhibit will be running through November 17.

Sprawled on about 110 hectares of a mountainside parkland in northern Tehran, the complex is used to be a royal summer residence during the Qajar era (1789–1925) and subsequent Pahlavi epoch (1925–1979).
