Antique Persian Qashqa’i 5'2"×9'4"

This antique Persian rug was woven in the southwestern area of modern-day Iran in the late 19th century by members of the Qashqa’i tribe. The Qashqa’i are a nomadic tribe inhabiting the southwestern parts of modern-day Iran. Their origins can be traced to Turkic tribes of the central asian steppes which migrated west beginning around the 13th or 14th centuries – possibly catalyzed by Mongol invasions under Ghengis Khan. Traditional Qashqa’i carpets and textiles reflect faint traces of their Turkmen origins, along with Caucasian and Persian influences. This piece features an unusual design more commonly found in small saddlebags. The ivory border framing the field is more typically found in rugs from the Shekarlu group.
