Persian Qashgai Rug
Persian Qashgai rugs are a type of handwoven rug that originate from the Qashqai tribe in Iran. The Qashqai tribe is a semi-nomadic group that traditionally resides in the southwestern region of Iran, known as Fars Province.
Qashgai rugs are known for their vibrant colours, intricate designs, and high-quality craftsmanship. They are typically made from high-quality wool, which provides durability and a plush texture. The patterns on Qashgai rugs often feature geometric shapes, medallions, and animal motifs, with each rug showcasing the unique creativity of the weaver.
The colours used in Qashgai rugs are rich and bold, with a variety of hues such as red, blue, yellow, and green. Natural dyes derived from plants, roots, and insects are commonly used in the coloring process, giving the rugs a rich and consistent color palette.
One of the distinguishing features of Qashgai rugs is their unique weaving technique. They are often woven on a horizontal loom, with the weaver sitting on the ground and using their hands to create the intricate designs. This traditional method of weaving has been passed down through generations, and each Qashgai rug is a result of the skill and expertise of the weaver.
Qashgai rugs are highly sought after by collectors and rug enthusiasts around the world due to their beauty, uniqueness, and cultural significance. They are not only considered as decorative pieces but also as valuable works of art that tell the story of the Qashqai tribe and their rich history.
In recent years, the production of Qashgai rugs has declined due to modernization and the migration of the Qashqai people from their tribal territories.
