I traveled to Tabriz and some near places over there in Norooz holidays. Kandovan Village is one of them. Kandovan is a village inside the mountains in a high altitude Zagros sierra. the people of Kandovan live in houses dug inside the mountains and their income is from selling Dairies, meet, wool, Honey and dried vegetables.
this is a view of Kandovan village:

Handcrafts are also among these people's business. People in Moghan, Ardebil, Sabalan and Tabriz knit and weave Kilims (Gelim) from wool and silk. beneath you can see a sample (for more sample go to Iranian Handcrafts website)

if you got same experiences or want to know more about Azerbayjan, please do not hesitate to comment it here or send me emails to emad at irxp . com
