Qashqai khorjin

c. 1900
South Persian Tribal
DESCRIPTION:

A local rendition of the classic Persian 'Herati pattern' is drawn against the madder-red ground of the two pile bagfaces of this Qashqai khorjin saddlebag set. Such formal and elegant drawing may at first seem counter-intuitive. Qashqai tribal weavers, however, have been reinterpreting and adapting designs and patterns from formal Persian weaving sense at least the 18th century. The colorful striped flatwoven back of this piece along with the braided tassels of the front, complete with their blue ceramic beads, portray a classic Qashqai southwest Persian tribal aesthetic.
