Qashqa’i is the name of one of the tribes that live in the Persian Fars region. In Persia they have the reputation as the most popular tribe, a fact that even influences the carpet weaving skills. These nomads use traditional horizontal looms, spin wool from their own sheep and blend dyes according to ancient plant recipes. Their rugs are rich in detail with many unique patterns improvised from traditional family motifs. As common with other nomadic tribes, the Qashqa’i also weave beautiful bags and horse blankets.
