Information about Aimaq: Taimuri

Other information: From Joshua Project: The Tyemur (or Timuri) are a mixture of Iranian, Mongolian, and Central Asian. Their name possibly comes from Timur Baktior, who was the emir of much of the Islamic world in the late 14th century. After the conquest, he forced Islam upon the people and they embraced the Persian culture. Many women are carpet weavers. The Timuri are known for their elaborate Heart Baluch rugs. Mothers teach their daughters to create rug patterns of their ancestors from wool on portable looms. Their language is a synthesis of languages, although most speakers would understand the Farsi language. JMS
