The Kashkulis are a sub tribe of the Kashghai tribe in southern Persia, and they are generally regarded as the best rug knotters. The knotting is exquisite for a tribal standard, where wefts of cotton or silk can be found. The pile is always wool, and mostly small sizes are produced. A wide range of patterns can be seen, but the most characteristic is an adaptation of the classical Herati or fish pattern, and a prayer arch pattern with cypress trees on either side. A wide range of colours is used.
Sherkat is the designation for a select series of rug types that are knotted in special workshops as part of a state controlled project, the purpose of which is to support and thereby preserve the production of fine classical Persian rug patterns.
Modern, classic or prestigious, the rug or carpet of your dreams can be found at Mengal Orient, the real oriental carpet.
