Tribal-Qashqai

pronounced kash-KAI)

Qashqai tribals love to flirt with color and design, many times using a deep blue as a predominant feature but highlighting with a creative palette of supporting colors, colors that many times you wouldn't expect to see in a hand-knotted carpet. Qashqai tribals use both hand-gathered natural dyes and more commercially farmed natural dyes like cochineal and indigo. Their wool is hand-spun using a spinning wheel. Coupled with a senna knot construction, Qashqais can be quite intricate in their designs.

  • Knot count: Over 100–144 knots per square inch
  • Colors in each rug: 6–9 colors
  • Composition: 100% wool on a cotton or wool warp and weft.
  • Type of knot: Senna
  • Production: A 9'x12' rug could be completed in 10–11 months by four to five experienced artisans working five to six hours a day.
