The Incredible Dome Tents of Iran, چادرهای باورنکردنی گنبد ایران ، شاهسوان آلاچیق 5

Not all tents are created equal, and the domed alachigh (yurts) of the Shahsavan nomads must be some of the most sophisticated on Earth. The whole structure is pre-tensioned before the felt cover is placed, which gives an incredible rigidity to the tent, able to withstand the gales that blow across their high mountain landscape. The Shahsavan are some of the world's most renowned weavers, and their beautiful straps and rugs adorn the tents and make them like palaces fit for an Iranian prince.

The Shahsavan formed in the eighteenth century from a confederation of tribes who occupied a region that spanned the Iran/Azarbaijan border. In 1884 the border was closed by the Russians and the tribe split in two, part in Iran and part in Azarbaijan. Since then the nomads have had to work hard to try to hold onto their lands and traditional way of life. This was filmed on the Iranian side of the border.

همه چادرها به طور یکسان ایجاد نشده اند و یورت های گنبدی عشایر شهسوان باید برخی از پیشرفته ترین روی زمین باشد. قبل از قرار دادن جلد نمد ، کل ساختار از قبل تنش یافته است ، که سفتی فوق العاده ای به چادر می دهد ، قادر به مقاومت در برابر گال هایی است که در چشم انداز کوه مرتفع آنها قرار دارد. شاهسوان برخی از مشهورترین بافندگان جهان هستند و تسمه ها و فرشهای زیبای آنها چادرها را زینت می دهد و آنها را مانند کاخ هایی مناسب برای یک شاهزاده ایرانی قرار می دهد.

A simple tent but based on many people's hard working, nothing is easy, I love the video.

The ultimate off grid living. And more importantly involves cooperating, working together and sharing, not wasting anything. Our ancestors got this part right too.

Thanks a lot, as an Iranian I've never seen how they make and erect the tents.

This gives me an appreciation for a people and a culture I know nothing about. At the very center and heart of things, all people cherish and value the same things; simple, happy and healthy lives for ourselves and our families and the chance to work hard and virtuously at something.

Excellent! I have wondered what many ways felt is made. Would love to know what species of wood the staves of the tent are made from? Good job filming! I live in the land of Bandelier Films.
