Tribal and Village Rugs: The Definitive Guide to Design, Pattern & Motif
"Essential reference...a must for collectors, scholars, and dealers."—Antiques & Auction News

Drawing on the rich weaving traditions of the Near East and Central Asia, Peter Stone's clearly presented text is divided into six major regional and tribal groupings covering Anatolian, Baluchi, Caucasian, Kurdish, Persian, and Turkmen motifs. These are subdivided into more precise attributions and motif types, examining the derivations and uses of medallions, field repeats, and borders, and the relationships between them.

Pattern recognition has long been used to determine the origin and age of rugs, and this analysis of designs and their component elements provides a vital key to accurate attribution. Detailed diagrams illustrate the way in which individual motifs are adapted and reinterpreted over time, their evolution crossing historical, cultural, and geographic boundaries.

Lavishly illustrated, this study not only is an invaluable aid to identifying tribal and village rug motifs but also provides a treasure house of creative inspiration for designers. 1,600+ color illustrations.

Tribal Rugs (Carpets & Textiles)
Providing a survey of the rug weavings of the nomadic peoples of Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey, the Caucasus and Central Asia, this volume follows the history of their design evolution from the 2500-year-old Pazyryk rug (the oldest complete rug of complex design) to antique and traditional designs, and up to the present day. As tribal life gives way to relentless modernization and it becomes too late to simulate artificially the broad cultural support on which a living craft depends, the art of tribal rugs becomes increasingly the domain of the collector and the scholar. The book's discussion of the origins of tribal weaving patterns is accompanied by illustrations and diagrams which enable readers to identify the relationship between the different patterns.
