Deutsch: Aus einer Teppichknüpferei in Hamadan. Täbris und Isfahan wie auch in vielen Dörfern, selbst in dunkeln Lehmhütten und Nomadenzelten, werden von Frauen und Mädchen, den billigsten Arbeitskräften, die berühmten Perserteppiche geknüpft. Für Nomaden und Wüstenbewohner bedeuten die bunten Ornamente ihres Teppichs ein Sinnbild des Paradieses und einen Ersatz für den Garten mit echten Blumen.
English: From a carpet-weaving in Hamadan. Tabriz and Isfahan, as well as in many villages, even in the dark nomad tents and mud huts, are headed by women and girls, the cheapest labor, the famous Persian rugs made. For desert dwellers, and nomads are the ornaments of their colorful carpet a symbol of paradise, and a replacement for the garden with real flowers.
Date circa 1922(1922)
