Madame et Monsieur Didier Claeys, Mon épouse et moi tenons à vous remercier très sincèrement tous les deux pour votre gentillesse, votre disponibilité à notre égard et votre grande compréhension, ainsi que votre extrême patience face à notre indécision dans le choix définitif du tapis qui doit nous convenir le mieux pour notre intérieur. Merci aussi pour être à notre écoute et avoir permis cette échange, qui je vous rassure tout de suite, après vérification des dimensions du mobilier ce matin, conviendra malgré les 2,34m de largeur du tapis, cela dit même si dix ou quinze centimètres de plus eut encore mieux fait lâ??affaire. Nous vous souhaitons un très bon week-end et au plaisir de vous revoir bientôt à Liège. D. Radelet et M. Guelder

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.
