  • Persian Oriental Qashqai Tribal Rug from the Fars province of southern Persia (the tribal areas not far from Shiraz).  
  • This particular small Hand-knotted pile wool rug measures 58cm by 62cm - this design is from the famous Persepolis ancient site in Southern Persia.
  • At certain times of year, if you are lucky you can see the Qashqai tribes migrating between their summer and winter pastures - we have been lucky enough to see this on a few occasions. They are spotted by the very colourful layered clothing riding their donkeys & mules and herding their sheep and goats along the roads and along the dry riverbeds along with lots of barking dogs!  
  • These small rugs are made by these tribespeople who are still trying to live a nomadic way of life; the designs are often quite intricate in the larger rugs but these small ones often have a central medallion with some other motifs in the corners or sometimes they may have an all over design or even a pictorial design.  Qashqai women weave what they see around them whether its depictions of jewellery, flowers, trees and animals or even a person.
  • These small rugs are are not production pieces and are becoming difficult to find as the nomadic way of life is dwindling and less people are weaving than before.
  • Rugs from the Qashqai tribe are usually quite finely woven and the better quality pieces nearly always have great soft wool quality (we only choose such pieces when buying).
  • Carpets woven by the Qashqai are also known as Qashgai, Qeshqayı, Ghashghai, Ghashghay, Gashgai, Gashgay, Kashkai, Qashqay, Qashqa'i, Ghashghaei, Kashqai to name a few!!
