Monsieur et Madame Claeys, Je tiens à vous dire toute ma satisfaction suite à mes nombreuses visites dans votre magasin. Votre accueil alliant amabilité, disponibilité et service est absolument remarquable. A cela s'ajoute que votre enseigne est synonyme de professionnalisme, qualité et choix. Tous ceux qui recherchent des tapis s'harmonisant parfaitement avec leur intérieur trouveront certainement leur bonheur chez vous. Parfois il leur faudra être patients et revenir, emmener des tapis et vous les rapporter jusqu'au moment où le tapis parfait sera "enfin" arrivé ... Les deux Azarchoub afghan achetés en 2012 font mon bonheur au quotidien. Merci à vous et bonne continuation. Anne Laforge

Origin: NOMADS FROM NORTHERN IRAN

The Shahsavan is an important confederation of nomadic Turkish origin in north-western Iran. Initially, the nomads came from Anatolia and settled northwest of Persia at the end of the sixteenth century, after asking permission from the Safavid king Shah Abbas to settle on the Persian territory. Demand coincided nomads Shah Abbas looking for protection from the northern border of his kingdom. The name of the confederation of nomadic Shahsavan shows a deep gratitude for having been allowed to take root in Persia. Shahsavan literally translated, basically means "friends of the king / shah" or "those who love the King / Shah".
Most live a semi-nomadic or settled to the south, mainly between Tabriz and Tehran, as well as around the city Veramin. Some also live in the northern part of the country on the border with Azerbaijan.
