The Qashqai people live around southern Isfahan, and especially around the cities of Shiraz and Firuzabad in Fars. The majority of Qashqai people were originally nomadic pastoralists, and some remain so today. The traditional nomadic Qashqai travelled with their flocks twice yearly to and from the summer highland pastures north of Shiraz roughly 300 miles south to the winter pastures on lower (and warmer) lands near the Persian Gulf, to the southwest of Shiraz. The majority, however, have now become partially or wholly sedentary but when this rug was woven, they were nomadic.
The beauty of Persian carpets is timeless and never goes out of fashion. This will be enjoyed for generations to come. Persian Carpets are the original that others copy and are appreciated and valued worldwide.
