Default A kaschan in akhangan ?

In the seventies I decided to visit Ferdowsi's mausoleum in Tus. The manager told me,since I was interested in art, to visit a tower not far from Tus, in timurid arquitecture style. It was very interesting. On my way back I stopped at a small village Akhangan. Asking about rug weaving a young woman in black chodor kindly offered herself to take me to a man who was weaving a rug in his house. To my surprise, on the loom, I could see a tipical Kaschan rug. The man told me he was born in Kaschan and that was the only way he knew how to weave a rug.
It is not important where a rug was woven, the important is who wove it.
