About the Author


Dr Fred Mushkat has been collecting and diligently studying the warp-faced woven bands of Iran since the late 1980s. His work is supplemented by detailed commentary co-written by the socio-cultural anthropologist Professor Lois Beck of Washington University in St. Louis, (the world expert on the Qashqa'i nomads in Southwestern Iran), and Naheed Dareshuri, a Qashqa'i nomadic pastoralist currently living in the United States. The book also includes a contribution by Professor Peter Alford Andrews, the world's foremost authority on the architecture and use of nomadic tents of Eurasia.
