Though I had some serious and narrow escapes during my travels ( but who cares for life at that age) - honestly at many times I realized why my parents didn't want me to travel to this part of the world.
I kept on traveling back and forth for two constant years and gained enough knowledge about six famous and most popular tribes of those areas.
Origin Afghanistan & Iran
Origin Caucasus (Armenia & Azerbaijan)
I got really fascinated by their designs, symbols and endless patterns. It opened a new chapter in my study about these people and their works of art. With no doubt, I consider them the best designers in this world. Being uneducated & illiterate they can create any kind of design for their rug which was unbelievable for me. While working on a rug I saw how they observe and create images in their vast memory and convert their imagination into amazing rugs.
After finishing my basic study about these wonderful people, I remained with my uncle for a couple of years and in 1999 I had a chance to visit Qatar to open a new branch for our company. It was a great exposure and gateway to sharing my knowledge of the subject in the world of Aesthetics.
