Iranian carpet is an art in a class by itself.   Some of its patterns and color combinations are truly intoxicating.  I am not sure why but the market for Iranian carpet seems depressed now.  Pakistan and China produce carpets with Iranian patterns and have gained a large market share.

 It is such a beautiful and visual trailer. The images are synchronized with the background music, especially the last 10 sconds of the video! It is awesome! I wish the tape was longer!

Thanks for sharing
