Description

Traditional Qashqai pictorial tribal rug from the Zagros Mountains of Southwest Iran.

Carpet showcases horseback riders hunting with a bow and arrow. The carpet also displays numerous birds, peacocks, goats, and animals in the field design. Tree-of-life images included as well.

Overall condition is excellent with some minor signs of wear. Small bit of dye pickup in the border, which is shown in a photo.

The overall layout of the birds, riders and wild animals is classic Qashqai carpet weaving.

Woven from 100% natural wool — including the warp and weft, which is typical for Qashqai tribal pieces. As these were nomadic people who raised sheep, not farmers who grew cotton, they use their own locally produced natural wool. That tradition generally continues.

Last photo with Morgan silver dollar displays the back of the rug.

The exact size is 6 ft. 3 in. by 4 ft.

The Qashqai are a confederation of 5 distinct tribal groups who banded together in a political alliance in the 19th century.

Another confederation — the Khamseh (5 in Arabic) — formed in the 19th century as a counterbalance to the Qashqai. The rugs of all of these tribes are quite similar in many respects.

Shipping is $43 within the continental U.S. Shipping with FedEx ground. Or possible free pickup near Stockton – Sacramento – San Andreas – East Bay Area with prior arrangement.
