SUPER QUALITY HAND MADE FINE GHASHGHAI RUG. SIZE 5 X 7.6 FT, MADE OF ALL NATURAL, VEGETABLE DYE, HAND WOVEN, PURE SILK AND WORSTED WOOL PILE ON COTTON FOUNDATION. A CONFLUENCE OF STYLES AND INFLUENCES, QASHQAI WOOL CARPETS INCORPORATE A VARIETY OF TRIBAL DESIGNS. THE NOMADIC TRIBAL WEAVERS INHABITED PARTS OF CENTRAL ASIA AND THE CAUCASUS BEFORE ARRIVING IN SOUTHERN PERSIA, MOVING ACROSS THE REGION OVER TIME. AS A RESULT, THEIR CREATIONS REFLECT THE BOLD GEOMETRY OF TURKMEN WEAVING, THE TENDENCY TOWARD STRIKING COLOR PALETTES AND SATURATED HUES INHERENT TO CAUCASIAN WEAVING, AND THE RICH ORNAMENTATION CHARACTERISTIC TO PERSIAN ARTISANS. A RANGE OF MOTIFS INSPIRED BY THE LANDSCAPES THEY TRAVERSED ARE OFTEN INCORPORATED INTO THESE EXOTIC ANTIQUES. THE MANUFACTURING OF CARPETS IS AN IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION TO THE LIFE OF THE NOMADS. THE CARPETS HAVE A TYPICAL RED GROUND COLOUR. THE PATTERN IS TIED FROM MEMORY AND OFTEN CONSISTS OF A CENTRALLY PLACED MEDALLION, REPEATED IN ALL FOUR CORNERS. HUMANS, FOUR LEGGED ANIMALS, BIRDS, TREES AND FLOWERS ARE POPULAR ELEMENTS. COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Iran.; The approximate year of origin: 1980-1990
