Bonjour Monsieur et Madame Claeys, Je tiens à vous remercier encore de tout coeur pour votre accueil et votre patience sans pareils à chacune de mes visites. Merci de m'avoir permis de changer d'avis et de choisir finalement ce très beau tapis qui convient parfaitement à mon petit hall d'entrée tant au niveau du motif moins chargé que des dimensions -un tout petit peu moins long- que du coloris plus doux par rapport à celui que j'avais précédemment retenu. Cette possibilité offerte à vos clients d'emporter les tapis chez eux pour les présenter dans leur contexte réel fait aussi partie des qualités tellement appréciées de votre belle enseigne. Je vous souhaite de continuer à prospérer dans vos activités commerciales comme dans tous les autres domaines. Avec mes salutations cordiales, A. Laforge

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.
