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.

Bonjour Madame et Monsieur, La société UPS m'a livré le tapis ce jour. J'ai également reçu aujourd'hui votre courrier accompagné du certificat de garantie. Je suis totalement satisfait du produit que vous m'avez vendu, tant par sa qualité que le motif choisi et les tons chauds que je recherchais. Ce tapis est destiné à mettre sous un piano (droit). Je tiens à vous remercier pour votre accueil et le sérieux de votre entreprise. Ces gages de qualité et de sérieux, je les avais déjà décelés via votre site WEB qui met en confiance. J'aime les tapis depuis toujours, j'en ai d'autres dans ma maison : persans, pakistanais, indiens et turcs (héréké), la plupart en soie. Lorsque je prendrai la décision d'acquérir un autre tapis, certainement un tapis mural en soie (pictural ou autre) de bonne facture je m'en remettrai à vous sans hésitation. Sincères salutations. Bernard MARDELLE
