Antique Persian Tribal Ghashgai Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persia Rugs, Circa Date: 1920 —  Much like many Ghashgai rugs, this one allows the fiery colors and patterns to speak for themselves. Relatively simple in its stitching, the piece combines a vibrant flow of hues with attractively flowing patterns to create a playful scene. Several rows of striped bars line the top and the bottom of the rug, leading the viewer’s eyes down through a crimson landscape that creates contrast against the other rich tones. Vermilion, white, blue and taupe all stand against each other in the diamond shapes at the rug‘s middle and in the beautiful border that surrounds its center.

Vermilion, white, blue and taupe all stand against each other in the diamond shapes at the rug’s middle and in the beautiful border that surrounds its center.  The dancing diamonds and rhythmic zig-zags in this trendily color-blocked antique rug give the piece a sense of movement and life.

Ghashgai (also spelled Qashqai) rugs are names for the nomadic peoples that weave them, who reside in the area of the Fars Province. Although this culture has not recorded its history in writing, they have passed it down through generations, and it is known that they have been weaving rugs for centuries. They are known for their rich colors, especially the use of reds, saffron, and navy. Another identifying trademark of Ghashgai rugs is their flat-weave style, which gives the rugs a sense of versatility to the nomadic tribes people who weave them. These rugs were originally used for everything from floor coverings, to bedspreads, to heat-conserving wall hangings.
