Bold colors, which are typical of Qashqai tribal rugs.

This is a very solid and somewhat rigid carpet. It could be placed in a high foot traffic area of the home without concern.

Photo with Morgan silver dollar displays the back of the rug.

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 (which means 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 will be $69 within the continental U.S. Or possible free pickup in East Bay Area or Nor Cal with arrangement.
