This Persian runner has a wool foundation and a wool pile. It is an above average weave, with 225 knots per square inch.
Qashquli rugs are some of the finest tribal weaves available. They are woven in villages and small towns in the Shiraz region in Central Iran. Given their more settled pace of life, the villagers who make these pieces are able to create finer and more detailed rugs than their nomadic cousins. The colours come from traditional vegetable-based dyes made from indigenous Persian plants. These same plants are often represented in the design. Other motifs are “apotropaic” magic symbols (or good-luck charms) like the evil eye, the wolf and the scorpion – all of which are said to provide protection for the flock.
Qashquli rugs are some of the finest tribal weaves available. Hand knotted in Iran, Qashquli rugs always use exceptional wool and are mostly based on a cotton foundation. Their thick, dense wool pile offer a wonderful feeling underfoot and bring cosiness to any space. This rug features particularly well-rendered chicken motifs that are quite uncommon and add a certain charming novelty.
