A classic Antique Persian Qashqai Rug hand knotted in Southern Iran circa 1890. This rug features a traditional diamond central medallion design surrounded by geometric fronds, flowers and lozenges that also continue within the borders. Rich brown, blue and cream colours bring each pattern to life within the rug.
Persian Qashqai Rugs are some of the most iconic Persian Rugs on the market. The rugs were woven by nomadic and semi-nomadic tribes-people in the South of Iran whose weaving techniques date back hundreds of years. This rug was woven with lustrous and excellent quality wool (Qashqai Rugs are famous for their wool quality!), which has helped ensure the rug's durability while maintaining a soft pile. The rug is in very good overall condition, with minor wear to the pile and some of the fringing.
This Antique Persian Qashqai Rug is a versatile design piece and suitable for both contemporary and traditional spaces. This rug adds richness and warmth to any setting, whether placed in an open-plan living area or classic bedrooms and sitting rooms.
