Persian Rug Qashqai Tribal Hand-Knotted Antique Wool Carpet

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This hand-knotted antique Persian tribal rug was hand made by women of the Qashqai tribe in southwest Persia.

Qashgai tribal rugs are always decorative and colorful works of art, mainly using the colors red (made from the Ronnas plant), blue (from the Indigo plant) and yellow (made from the Reseda plant) - in many different shades. Other colors - for example green - are made by first dying the wool in yellow in the first dye bath and in blue in a second dye bath.

The wool used for these rugs comes from the own grown sheep that spend the summer in the Zagros mountains, where they find plants and herbs that result a very nice wool quality when the sheep are shorn. The wool then is hand carded - a process in which the wool is sorted by length and color, spun by hand to receive a wool thread and then dyed with pure organic dyes.

This antique rug is in very nice condition with typical aging and patina.
