Complete kit for the experienced needleworker to produce a 1/12th scale miniature version in needlepoint of an authentic oriental carpet. The kit contains a pattern chart with information about the origins of the carpet, fully illustrated instructions, 22-holes-to-the-inch bound canvas, Appleton's crewel wool, perle cotton for the fringe and a tapestry needle.
The original carpet on which this miniature version is based was made in a 20th century workshop of the Azerbaijan region of north-west Iran. The most famous carpet to come from Ardabil is the 16th century carpet now in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
