A Stunning Persian Handmade Quashgai ( Gaschgai ) Killim This Killim Rug Is Fully Reversible And Will Complement Any Home Period Or New It Has Been Bought From Bankrupt Stock We Are Able To Offer It At A Greatly Reduced Price This Qashqai Kilim consists of wool and is a handmade flat-weave, i.e. a rug without pile.  The weft coloured weft threads are woven in blocks which creates the pattern, and where two colours meet there is a tiny gap – hence the term slit weave.
One of the many benefits of this type of kilim is that because of the way it is constructed it is the same on both sides, meaning that it can be used either way up.
The Qashqai are a large confederation of tribes and are the second largest Turkic group in Iran. The Qashqai are located in the Fars province close to Shiraz and Persepolis in South-West Iran.
It has often been suggested that the name Qashqai is derived from the Turkic word which means horse with a white blaze: a symbol of good fortune to the Qashqai.
The Qashqai traditionally are pastoral nomads who migrate with their livestock on a seasonal basis. Although with the change from pastoral nomadism to more settled agriculture and other urban occupations many of the Qashqai have settled into villages and towns
