Persian Qashqai rugs are recognized by their bold, graphic designs and their brilliant color combinations of madder red, indigo blue and golden-yellow. Constructed purely of wool, this Qashqai rug is from the mid to early 19th century and features a design of three vertically connected diamond medallions on fields of red and blue. Qashqai rugs are woven by tribe women from the Qashqai region in southwestern Iran and utilize designs passed down from generations of weaving.
