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 .

This vintage saddlebag from the Qashqai tribe is woven from very finely spun wool, allowing a small and detailed design to be woven. Both the front and the back are very well worked, the front part being more symmetrical and regular and the back has more improvisations. The saddlebag has a small repair, otherwise in very good condition.
