Description

The Ghashghais, one of the largest Persian tribes, in part nomadic and in part sedentary or inhabit the region north-west of Shiraz extending to the border of the Mahallat province.

Their immediate neighbors on the north-west are the Baktiaris, another important tribe. Together with certain neighboring tribes known as Arabs or Torkis, the Ghashghai are the principal manufacturers of the rugs known to the rugs known to the trade as “Shiraz rugs”. The Ghashghai rugs are sometimes even called “Meccas”, although this is not in Persia. They exhibit the features typical of nomad rugs: they consist entirely of wool, which is of the highest quality, very springy and with a silky glow. Vegetable dyes are used, as even among the most recent productions it is rare to find one in which artificial dyes have been used. In many, the base is dark blue, probably so that the dark wool of the sheep can be used in their production; a reddish brown, is also used. As for the pattern, a somewhat compressed form of the Ferahan design is seen, while floral ornaments and representation of plans or scrubs are frequent. Previously, the ornaments often included the Indian leaf, and small domestic animals, such as dogs, sheep, fowls etc. Some decades ago a design used was the Ashkali pattern. While the basis of the main Ashkali design consists largely of geometric rosettes, the border often has a flowery pattern. Between each pair or rosettes lie two comb-like formations in a slanting position.
