This is to let you know that the carpet is delivered and to thank you that I really appreciate the preciseness and efficiency while treating my request. The carpet is really very beautiful and I am happy that I bought it (it reminds me my childhood, my family lived a part of their life in Afghanistan-Turkey-Iran area, and we had practically the same design carpet (little lighter, with silk), but this one looks very good in the place where it is, and though I know that it is of medium quality, it looks in our appartment very "spacious". thank you again, with all kind regards, Evelina Rioukhina

Shahsavan


Origin: NOMADS FROM NORTHERN IRAN

The Shahsavan is an important confederation of nomadic Turkish origin in north-western Iran. Initially, the nomads came from Anatolia and settled northwest of Persia at the end of the sixteenth century, after asking permission from the Safavid king Shah Abbas to settle on the Persian territory. Demand coincided nomads Shah Abbas looking for protection from the northern border of his kingdom. The name of the confederation of nomadic Shahsavan shows a deep gratitude for having been allowed to take root in Persia. Shahsavan literally translated, basically means "friends of the king / shah" or "those who love the King / Shah".
Most live a semi-nomadic or settled to the south, mainly between Tabriz and Tehran, as well as around the city Veramin. Some also live in the northern part of the country on the border with Azerbaijan.

Characteristics:

Their weavings are considered among the best qualities in Iran. Typical colors Shahsavan often include a deep indigo blue and crimson warm red. Finely woven with geometrical designs. Compared to other Iranian nomadic tribes, the Shahsavan produce not a lot of knotted pile carpet.

The weft is also pure wool of good quality. The warp yarn in wool or cotton.

 

It is interesting to know that Shahsavan tents called "Alachiq" differ greatly from other tents used in Iran. They closely resemble the Turkmen yurts. Today only a few Shahsavan lives completely as nomads.
