Turkic-speaking pastoral nomadic tribal groups began entering central and southern Iran during the eleventh and twelfth centuries.The Qashqai, as a large tribal unit, dates back at least to the early eighteenth century, when some Turkish (Turki)-speaking tribal groups in the region existed under the name Qashqai.

Qashqai kilims are best known for their boldness and and freedom in the way the pattern is drawn. An aesthetically pleasing geometry, the fineness of their wool and their clear, strong colours combine to ensure their reputation as superlative examples.

Garden design Persian rugs highlight a special aspect of Persian culture.

To Persians, gardens are more than just a beautiful looking space. They represent Paradise – a place ensconced in splendor, beauty and happiness.

Weavers showcased all of these facets in their creations as a way to express their hopes and belief in this wondrous place.

The Garden design essentially features an elaborate field filled with an exotic variety of flowers, trees and assorted vegetation.

There are several variations of this basic design. The most common design consists of multiple panels in the field with an assortment of flowers, leaves, trees, and birds woven within each panel.

In some garden design rugs, each panel has a unique design, while in others the same design is repeated in every panel. In this vintage Qashqai rug, each panel is different and in the middle the emblem of the Qashqai tribe has been woven.
