Located in the southwestern region of the country, the Ghashghai people have a rich cultural heritage that is reflected in the intricate designs and craftsmanship of their carpets. The Ghashghai tribe has been known for weaving carpets for centuries. Their nomadic lifestyle, moving seasonally between the Zagros Mountains and the plains of Iran, influenced their craft, with motifs often inspired by nature, animals and tribal symbols.

Ghashghai rugs are made using traditional techniques that have been passed down through generations. Skilled artisans, often tribal women, use a combination of wool and sometimes silk to create these masterpieces, using techniques such as knotting and weaving on vertical threads.

Ghashghai carpets are characterized by their geometric patterns, intricate floral motifs and vibrant colors. Each design has cultural significance, with motifs representing elements of tribal life, beliefs and traditions. These designs are often passed down orally from generation to generation, ensuring the preservation of Ghashghai cultural heritage.
