Carpet Market

Daulatabad, Afghanistan

On carpet market day in a northern border town, men display the carpets their wives and children have woven. Most of these brilliant red rugs follow traditional designs. They are all magfiicent. I had the impression there were only a few buyers, and I did not see very many sales that day. Perhaps the prices being offered were too low.
