Le thé est bien arrivé vendredi 3 juin dans un bel emballage fabriqué à Tabriz que je n'ai pas jeté. Comme toujours, le tapis est plus beau que sur les photos. Voila un beau parterre de fleurs qui n'a pas besoin d'eau pour rester fleuri. Quant au thé, il dégage un arôme et un parfum très agréable. Encore merci pour cette délicate attention. Je vous assure, ainsi que votre épouse, de mon amical souvenir et je souhaite que la quatrième génération de Mengal continue de proposer de superbes tapis après vous, si l'un de vos enfants désire continuer cette belle aventure familiale.

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.
