Roxy, an Antique tribal Persian Khamseh warrior rug in red, brown, rich blue tones. Made from organic wool and coloured with vegetable dye. Handwoven in the 1930's by Qashqai (pronounced Ghash-gha-ee) nomads, high up in the Zagros Mountains of southern Persia.
At any given moment over the next ten weeks, over a hundred thousand people and one million and a half animals will creep through desolate mountain passes or across high alpine meadows on their three hundred mile trek to their winter pasturelands near the Persian Gulf.
Weavers of highly desired Persian tribal rugs, the Qashqai people possess a history and culture rich in both struggle and inspiration. It is the combination of these two elements which give their antique rugs their unusual sense of spontaneity and aliveness.
Excellent condition with no holes or tears. Natural fade with age.
Professionally washed and cleaned.
