Carpet Weavers

This photo was taken at a government run carpet factory in Halach, Turkmenistan by Lawrence Schwartz. The ladies had given me the honor of cutting the finished carpet from the loom. When they have finished a carpet and tied in a few knots across the warp they will cut a warp yarn and tie it around their heads. This is done to ensure that more carpets will come their way!
They tied a warp yarn around my head too
