Tale of Carpet Flowers



Do you know the origin of the Persian carpet? There are so many designs that are fun just to look at and that's as it should be, because the first Persian carpet ever to be created was interwoven with the feelings of a certain family. This is a work that lets the viewer feel the warmth of carpets.

I loved this beautiful mythical story. I like all the family members who started making Persian carpets. The way how they help each other, how they take care of each other, and how they love each other is so touching. This film teaches us a lot of things. Very nice film !

"Tale of Carpet Flowers" is about beautiful Persian carpets and a family who first started to make carpets. You don't have to be a Persian-addict to like this movie. It's enjoyable and very touching. A bit about the history of Persian carpets and family love. It is always nice to see family-oriented people help and love each other.

The chemistry between the beautiful Persian carpets and the nice family is great. Also, the anime is charming and the music is perfect for the film. I think this short film is definitely one of the best !
