  • How is a Storyteller like a Persian Carpet?

    The techniques can be specific to a geographic area or nomadic tribe but the result is always magnificent.

    The craft has been nurtured for thousands of years and handed down from one generation to the next.

    There are millions of weavers.

    And just as many variations of outcome.

    The quality of the material, the skill of the weaver and the tightness of the weave determines the value of the creative end result.

    A good story, like a beautiful Persian carpet, is tightly woven.
