Je tiens à remercier Monsieur Didier Claeys; bien que je ne sois pas son client, il a accepté d'expertiser un tapis que j'avais acheté chez un démarcheur de passage à Montpellier et qui avait frappé à ma porte. Ce tapis m'avait été vendu comme un tapis en soie d'Ispahan fait main au prix de ... 5000 EUROS. En fait, il s'agissait d'un tapis mécanique de très bas de gamme avec fibres synthétiques d'une valeur de +/- 150 euros ! Et surtout que ceux qui me lisent ne disent pas qu'il là s'agit -là d'une espèce de jalousie ou de la volonté de Monsieur Didier Claeys de déprécier ou de casser un concurrent puisque Monsieur Didier Claeys avait déjà expertisé un tapis vendu également par un autre démarcheur montpelliérain et présenté comme un tapis en soie. Monsieur Didier Claeys, après expertise, m'avait pleinement rassuré ; il s'agissait d'un vrai tapis en soie. Son honnêteté est donc évidente; faites-lui confiance. Luc Elmlinger, Montpellier

Gashgai


The Kashghai are Iran’s largest and most well known tribe. They speak a Turkish dialect, and are believed to have come from the Caucasus in the 18th century to their current areas, around Shiraz in the Fars Province of southern Iran. Their belligerent attitude has lead to conflicts with changing governments, as well as other tribes in the area. Both their rugs and the women’s clothing clearly show their skills and love of colours. Many subtribes exist, the most important ones being the Bilvedi, the Shishbouki, the Darashuri, and the Kashkuli. The Kashghai knot numerous types of rugs, but a characteristic product can be distinguished by its wool construction, the sturdy ridges on the back, its strong, deep colours (especially the red), as well as by the use of traditional motifs such as Harshang or the crab. The patterns are geometrical, typically with three or five medallions along the centre of the rug or in the middle and corners. The entire field is usually covered in small geometrical motifs. Persepolis motifs can often be found in the rugs. The Kashghai are also famous for their older crafts, such as horse blankets, saddlebags, and rope. The products of other tribes, such as the Kamseh and the Lori, are often mistaken for those of the Kashghai.
