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.

Monsieur et Madame Claeys, Je tiens à vous dire toute ma satisfaction suite à mes nombreuses visites dans votre magasin. Votre accueil alliant amabilité, disponibilité et service est absolument remarquable. A cela s'ajoute que votre enseigne est synonyme de professionnalisme, qualité et choix. Tous ceux qui recherchent des tapis s'harmonisant parfaitement avec leur intérieur trouveront certainement leur bonheur chez vous. Parfois il leur faudra être patients et revenir, emmener des tapis et vous les rapporter jusqu'au moment où le tapis parfait sera "enfin" arrivé ... Les deux Azarchoub afghan achetés en 2012 font mon bonheur au quotidien. Merci à vous et bonne continuation. Anne Laforge
