korsi | Craft Classic: The Persian carpet

Korsi is a traditional heating system. It is a large low table covered with a large blanket that drapes off the sides of it, with a large plate of hot coal that sits under it. People sit around it, and cover their feet and body with the large blanket to keep warm. Image sourced from Rahgoshay Museum. http://rahgoshaymuseum.ir/
