About the piece

Khmaseh, part of the five Kashgai tribes confederation, located in south of Shiraz. They use to migrate twice a year each time approx. 900 km through the valleys and ancient road with their belongings, flocs of sheep, goat, chickens, tents, etc. Weaving carpets have always been part of their daily life. They have no set or fixed designs drawn on papers and it is known that they are some of the most interesting and artistic people in terms of the variety of designs which they get inspired by their surrounding. Mostly use wool in warp, weft and pile that they sheer themselves and often dye the wool locally which results to various and irregular shades of one colour on the pile of the rug which is called abrash. This is truly a fine sample which must have been woven by a very skilled weaver in more intricate design. looking at the details one could clearly see that this is a collectable Kashgai of high quality.
