Shiraz Qashquai

The Qashquai (Kashgay) are the largest and best known of Iran's nomadic tribes. They are thought to have migrated from the Caucasus in the eighteenth century to their present territories around Shiraz in the Fars province, southern Iran. They speak a dialect of Turkish. Their warlike character has led them into conflict with successive governments as well as with the other tribes of the area. Their skill in craftsmanship and love of colour are evidenced both in their rugs and the clothing of the women. There are many sub-tribes, of which the most important are the Bilverdi, the Shishboluki, the Darashuri and the Kashkuli.


The Qashquai weave several types of rugs. A characteristic product can be recognized by its all-wool construction, heavy ribbing on the reverse, strong deep colours (particularly the red), and the use of traditional motifs such as the 'Hashing' or crab. Typically, The Designs are geometrical with a row of three of five medallions down the middle of the rug, or in the center and corners. The whole field is generally covered with small geometric motifs. The products of other tribes, such as the Khamseh and Lori, are often confused with those of the Qashquai.

This one is woven with good quality wool and is very hard wearing as well as being very decorative and beautiful. The design is very interesting and is a very primitive way of showing the medallion and tribal motifs.
