Parisa Abdollahi invites you to step into her world of Qashqai people. This semi-nomadic tribe of Southern Iran is known for weaving the most sought-after rugs in the world. Meet Parisa’s father, a sixth-generation Qashqai rug merchant, and enjoy a delicious Persian stew, homemade by Parisa’s mother. Then sit back and enjoy as she tells us the story of her heritage, the fascinating story of the tribe’s nomadic travels and carpet weaving traditions.
