Bonjour Monsieur CLAEYS, J"ai été agréablement surprise de voir que l'ordre de virement que j'avais effectué le 11 novembre, vous était déjà parvenu le lendemain et que ma petite carpette avait encore été déposée le jour même à la Poste. Comme les années précédentes, je suis enchantée de mon achat. Merci

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.

Vraiment un très large choix allant de tapis d’Orient classiques aux tapis contemporains. Après avoir acheté un tapis ethnique d’Afghanistan, plein de couleurs, nous en avons acheté un second, provenant d’Inde, très différent, en laine non teintée. Abondance de photos sur le site ; très représentatives des tapis concernés. Si vous avez l’occasion de vous rendre sur place, n’hésitez pas ! Voir les tapis de visu, les toucher, bénéficier des informations de la famille Mengal, découvrir des tapis que vous n’aviez pas remarqués sur le site tant le choix est large. Tout le temps nécessaire vous sera consacré, sans vous pousser, afin que vous trouviez votre bonheur. Recommandé sans hésitation !
