5'1 x 9 Antique Qashqai Shekarlu Rug (#1489)/ 5x9 vintage rug

Regular price $1,675.00

From quite possibly the most famous nomads throughout the Zagros Mountains of southern Persia, this Qashqai rug speaks its song and story. Woven in the 19th Century, this tribal rug is what we believe to be a Shekarlu Qashqai rug based what we see in the border art (scorpion motifs). These rugs are a particular subset of the Qashqai tribe. 

This rustic and beautifully worn Persian has several animal and life elements woven and undoubtedly symbolizes to us the weaver's story, community and history. You can spot peacocks (immortality) and stars (for luck), amongst many other small scale motifs throughout the field. 

This is a wool rug on wool foundation, naturally dyed with vegetables, roots and plant resources. This is definitely a hard wearing rug that is durable and displays immense character, showing off its beautiful age of over 140 years. It would look great on a hard wood floor as well as on stone. It's earthy color ways are soothing. 

Low pile and worn. Has a few small patches. Please see pics for details. 

We do recommend a rug pad for this beauty, to keep it snug and prolong its long life. You can order one with us if you like, and we custom cut and send once shipped. Click below if you'd like to go for it:
