  • Description

    In London on a special mission - six men and a girl. They have flown from Teheran to their own peculiar work/ magic with carpets - Persian carpets. They're said to be the only restorers of precious carpets outside Persia and have been brought over here by a new shop in Bond Street. Carpets for restoration come from Museums, stores, auction rooms, and private owners, many of whom don't realise the vauof their possessions. Some designs go back three or four thousand years and our-figure prices are not uncommon. The work party - its members were chosen after stiff competition in their own country-has brought its own supply of soil, wool and dyes. For the next two years they will patiently be repairing and restoring the time-ravaged work of their compatriots.
