Many Indian tribes were known for their fighting strategy and fierce warriors like the Apache and Comanche tribes.Town manufactories like those of Tabriz have played an important historical role in reviving the tradition of carpet weaving after periods of decline.Rugs woven by the villages and various tribes of Iran are distinguished by their fine wool, bright and elaborate colours, and specific, traditional patterns.Within the group of Oriental rugs or Islamic carpets produced by the countries of the so-called "rug belt", the Persian carpet stands out by the variety and elaborateness of its manifold designs.Persian carpets and rugs of various types were woven in parallel by nomadic tribes, in village and town workshops, and by royal court manufactories alike. n.d.(1970), Textile Museum, 4 p., 1 illus., 28 x 21.5 cm.
