Trove Tuesday: Buying a Persian Rug, in Persia, from a Persian

When this post goes live, I will be in Iran on our belated honeymoon. Hopefully, I will be buying a Persian Rug, in Persia, from a Persian.

At the moment, I am thinking I love the Esfahan patterns and colours best, but I will have to let you know what I end up buying!
