Qashqai is the name of Turkish Nomads from Persia. Rugs knotted by Qashqai Nomads are highly prized, not only for their quality but also their beautiful patterns and design elements. These rugs are hand knotted from fine naturally dyed wools. The colours sit well together and are usually deep rusty reds with blues, greens and gold elements. The patterns can depict floral and animal images.
