(Connoisseur-Caliber) Qashqai carpets, known for their seemingly infinite fineness of weave and intricacy of design, also possess an often unimaginable depth of naturally dyed color even at such a significant age. The richness of the crimson medallions is unfaltering, as is the saturation of the midnight indigo of the field, boldly contrasting the clear ivory used throughout. The generous width is further emphasized by the extension of the medallions' spandrels, as well as the expanse of the field and the very narrow surrounding borders. Learn About This Rug Type
