Qashqai rugs bring a unique approach to the Persian rug market. The Qashqai find themselves adorned with prominent, thorough designs paired with luminous colors across their composition. An ancient history paired with an original antiquity look makes the Qashqai a distinctive member of the Persian rug family. For anyone seeking a centerpiece that will grab the eyes of all house guests, the Qashqai is the perfect candidate. The Qashqai rug gains its namesake from the Qashgai tribe. The Qashgai tribe came to forge these carpets through their tribeswomen over the past 1,000 years. There are no recorded histories of the Qashgai, but the legends of their existence have been told throughout Chinese Turkestan. Around the 16th century, the Qashgai settled in the Fars province of Persia. Since then, their perseverance has faced the political upheaval of the past 300 years in full force, even forming their own republic, the Qashgai Confederacy, to maintain their freedom and removal from this volatility. Due to their origins being steeped in Persia, the Qashqai rugs are woven with asymmetric knots--the common practice among Persian weavers. A unique trait to the Qashqai's craft is their deeply depressed warp. This, paired with the red dyed weft, creates an extremely original product that stands out among the market. The Qashqai are weaved over looms by several tribeswomen who normally sing, dance, and celebrate during the rug's entire construction. No weaver stays on the same loom necessarily--each aids one another, moving to one loom after another to aid in their building. Characteristics of Qashqai Rugs.
