This review is from: The Carpet Wars: From Kabul to Baghdad: A Ten-Year Journey Along Ancient Trade Routes (Hardcover)
A fascinating book for anyone who's ever dabbled in rugs. Even if you've been to an Arab souk or an Iranian bazaar, you've probably never come close to the real source of these beautiful objects. Kremmer's trek to the rug-making heartlands helps you appreciate that the carpet on your living room floor didn't materialise in a dealer's show room but was rather the product of a completely different society.
