Kelardasht is a town of 11,000 people in the Mazanderan province near Roodbarak. Although the area is mountainous, it is just south of the Caspian Sea. Ethnographically, the area is populated by an enclave of Northern Kurds.

Based on the nature and quality of the rugs, and the cluster of Northern Kurds around Kelardasht, some experts believe that these people are refugees pushed out of the Caucasus in the 19th and early 20th century, and may have originated near Karabagh.
