Additional information:

One of the best and most famous types of Iranian hand-woven carpets is the Qashqai carpet, which has a long history and is the result of hundreds of years of hardworking people of the Qashqai tribe.

The hand-woven Qashqai carpet can be introduced as one of the symbols of the authenticity and beauty of the art of carpet weaving among Iranians, which has been able to attract the attention of many people in Iran and even the world due to its special structure.

Among the features of the Qashqai carpet, the variety of designs is very high, and the use of natural colors.

The common and traditional motifs of Qashqai carpets should be divided into two main categories at least in the last three centuries.

The first category: is carpets with traditional nomadic designs and decorations.

The distinctive feature of this category of Qashqai carpets is the geometric pattern and texture of the carpet without using pre-designed designs. The weaver imagines the traditional designs in his mind and weaves the carpet. Also, not imitating a specific role and not having a specific order, and refraining from simulating in these carpets are their main signs.

Original and ancient motifs of Qashqai, Lori and other Persian weavers have remained in the weaves of this category, and it is in these weaves that traces of the link between Qashqai and the Caucasus and other Turkish weaving regions can be found.

The second category is regular, harmonious, and symmetrical designs and patterns, most of which do not have nomadic or rural roots, and their design is mostly inspired by urban woven carpets and other arts of urban civilization, such as fabric, cashmere, and calligraphy.
