Introduction:          

Geometrical elements dominate Qashqai pieces. Similar to Gabbeh rugs; Qashqai carpets are noted for their stylized flowers, trees, animals, and humans. These patterns also include numerous adaptations of the infamous Botteh Motif; a leaf-like floral symbol that appears in a similar fashion to the Paisley design. In addition, multiple variations of medallion patterns, and repeated presentations of floral designs, are used in decorating these Persian artworks. 

Description: 

Qashqai pieces are hand-knotted on ground looms and produced, for the most part, by the Qashqai people of Iran. These tribal beauties are usually made with wool warps and wefts. Having said that, there are also finer works that use cotton as warp and/or weft. These carpets, therefore, are known to be heavier, tougher, rougher, and most importantly, more durable compared to many other Persian rugs, which is exactly what makes them a very suitable candidate for covering the floor in high traffic areas. As such, Qashqai pieces, are considered by many to represent all that is good and valuable in the world of nomadic carpets. 

Price Range and Value:

Qashqai tribal rugs showcase a fascinating combination of designs and colours. This means it is fairly harder to penetrate in Qashqai carpets' piles, which puts them in a higher tier with respect to quality compared to other nomadic pieces. Given their higher knot count and better pile density, these oriental beauties are unmatched in terms of their price and value. Their smaller pieces start from 5' in length, and 3' in width, for the price of $ 500, and they go all the way to 8' in length, and 6' in width, for the price of $ 1500.
