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.

This is to let you know that the carpet is delivered and to thank you that I really appreciate the preciseness and efficiency while treating my request. The carpet is really very beautiful and I am happy that I bought it (it reminds me my childhood, my family lived a part of their life in Afghanistan-Turkey-Iran area, and we had practically the same design carpet (little lighter, with silk), but this one looks very good in the place where it is, and though I know that it is of medium quality, it looks in our appartment very "spacious". thank you again, with all kind regards, Evelina Rioukhina
