Antique Qashqai Tribal Woven Kilim Horse Blanket from the Fars province of southern Persia (the tribal areas not far from Shiraz). Made by nomadic tribespeople, this is a rare tribal trapping to find these days - we love the workmanship in this old antique piece. The measurements of this horse blanket are approximately 180cm front to back including the tassels and approx 160cm across (when opened).  It is around c 1900 so over 100 years old.  The condition is fair but you can see from the images that there is some damage which is why it it priced as it is.  This is more of a collectors piece, but it has such lovely work and colours that it would look great on any body's wall or thrown over the back of a sofa etc.

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 trappings are made by these tribespeople who are still trying to live a nomadic way of life; the designs are often quite intricate. Qashqai women weave what they see around them whether its depictions of jewellery, flowers, trees and animals or even a person. See more about Rug Motifs, Symbols & Meaning here.
