This carpet is knotted by nomads from the highlands in southwestern Iran. The Ghashghaei nomads are found in the Fars province in the southwest of Iran and they live in the provinces of Fars. The nomads move twice a year. They have a summer camp in the Zagros mountains and one in the Persian Gulf in winter. The Ghashghaei use their own wool for the production of carpets, which belong to their everyday objects. The carpets are used in a variety of applications: as a wall tapestry or as a carpet for the floor of tents. Persian rugs of the Ghashghaei can be recognized by their typical red-brown color. The practical coloring is not sensitive to dirt. The carpets are decorated with various motifs. Whether animals, plants, flowers or trees – the whole world of the Ghashghaei can be found in the carpet’s design. Usually, the motifs are knotted on a basic pattern of a hexagon or of diamond-shaped medallions. There are also those with round middle medallions. The material used for the Ghashghaei rugs is of natural origin. From sheep hair to goat hair to horsehair, everything the nomads can produce themselves is used. The colors also originate from nature.
