Tribal Rugs


'Tribal Rugs - Treasures of the Black Tent' was first published in 1997, followed by a second edition in 2010 and proving so poular, an up-dated third edition was published in 2017. This third edition is now nearing its end and, as I write, there are around 100 copies left.
My lifelong love of tribal rugs started in my early 20s in 1972 when I spent a year living with two nomadic tribes in southern Iran whilst carrying out survey work for two archaeological expeditions. After this amazing experience, I went on to work in Kerman until 1977, when it was time to leave with the Iranian Revolution in sight! After several years working in the London finance sector, I threw in the towel and opened Samarkand Galleries in Stow-on-the-Wold in the beautiful Cotswolds, where I still am today, although now working from home on-line.
With my love of tribal rugs, and regularly acquiring great examples, I spent approximately 10 years in my spare time, writing this book, dedicated to the pre-1900 carpets, rugs, kilims and weavings of the Persian, Transcaucasian, Afghan and Turkmen tribes.
The book is available from me and on-line at 50 plus postage.
Viewing by appointment only.
