Measuring a rare and sought-after 6x8 feet, this storied rug boasts an all-encompassing art design that weaves a narrative of tribal heritage and folk artistry. Each intricate detail, each carefully chosen color, speaks volumes about the Qashqai people's creativity and reverence for tradition. The rug's design is an ode to the tribe's cultural identity, capturing the essence of their nomadic lifestyle and profound connection to nature.
