The heaven on Qashqai Rugs.

As a person who is interested in carpets and handicrafts, while gazing at the coherent composition and the mad colors of a Qashqai rug, I ask myself what is this masterpiece if  not a piece of abstract art?

With thousand years of cultural background and amazing rituals and traditions, the Turk nomads of Qashqai tribes wander between the vast and sunny plains of Fars and carry along the culture lovers and adventurers along. 

These magnificent rugs, known as a UNESCO world intangible heritage, are woven by Qashqai women. They shear their sheep, dye the soft wool with natural herbs in large pots, professionally spin the dyed wool and start weaving the carpet or better to say crafting the imaginary stories they keep in heart and mind. Qashqai carpets have different layouts including “Yek Sar Nazem”, “Maahi dar ham”, “Moharamat”, "Se Toranj" and etc. Looking at a piece of Qashqai rug with warm colors and floral and abstractive motifs is like wandering through a magical garden which is only touchable in a beautiful dream.

Spending a night in a Qashqai tent, listening to their magical music and enjoying their beautiful rugs and handicrafts is an experience that won’t be forgotten for a lifetime.

  8. If the area rug is thick, you should place a felt carpet pad under it to give a softer feel on the hardwood floor and protect it from foot impact that happens every time you step on the rug as well as hardwood floor damage from the weight of heavy furniture.
