Stock No.15256

A Qashqai tribal carpet with a central midnight blue medallion filled and surrounded by a field of small floral motifs.

The Qashqai people, throughout their history, have been nomadic their tribes travelling hundreds of miles across the Middle East to winter near the Persian Gulf. Their history and culture is rich in both struggle and inspiration which greatly influences the designs and motifs found in their carpets and give them an unusual sense of spontaneity and aliveness. These carpets are usually woven by the women of the tribe who, defying the modern practice of using commercial dyes, continue to almost exclusively use natural vegetable and plant dyes and follow the more traditional weaving techniques. Their family carpets are greatly treasured and they have a saying: “Where I am is my carpet. Where my carpet and I am is my home.”
Persian, mid 1950s.
