Qashqai Rug

Qashqai Rug

Although this delightful rug has the design typically associated with the Shekarlu subtribe of the Qashqai Federation, the weave and other elements suggest it may have been woven by another of the subtribes. Designs were obviously fluid and moved among the weavers of the various tribal groups, but this rug has a joy and freedom to it differentiating itself from the more austere Weavings of the Shekarlu. It has lovely quality hand spun wool and beautiful natural dyes. Note the lovely lime green border. The pile is even and thin with minor restorations in places. Professionally cleaned in our workshop. This is a charming and authentic tribal rug with great character which should appeal to collectors and decorators.
