Carpet buying in Iran

Can anybody advise me where to buy carpets in Iran. A place where the locals buy from, not the regular tourist traps. Thanks

Asad

What kind of patterns & how many knots per sq cm carpets do they weave? Do I have to order beforehand if I need a certain design? Does this person charge commission from the seller or the buyer? Sorry for so many questions. Regards

Thank you,

I guess this is what I will do. Though many agents have also contacted me offering their help(maybe the commisssion is given by the seller). Whenever I go, I will ask for your advise, help and further information. If it's okay with you.

Hi friend

I think carpets of Kashan and Tabriz are more famous.
