Persian Kashkuli (Keshkuli) rugs and carpets

The people of the Persian Kashkuli tribe are close kin to the more famous Qashqai tribe. These people of south west Iran are Turkic in origin and still speak a dialect of Turkish today. The Kashkuli people still lead a semi-nomadic life, mainly based in and around the Iranian town of Shiraz, and migrating into the mountains of the Fars province during the summer months. The rugs and carpets produced by the Kashkuli tribes are renowned as the finest available from the nomadic community and production is very limited.
