Qashqai khorjin

19th C (4th Q)
Southwest Persia
DESCRIPTION:

Bands of interlocking swirling ornament are drawn across the two pile bagfaces of this Qashqai Khorjin set. The design seen here most likely originated from flatweave but became relatively popular among several groups of Southwest Persian tribal weavers in the 19th century. Here it is rendered in the exceptionally soft wool for which Qashqai pile weavings are renowned. The colorful interlocking border is likewise a popular Qashqai variant blurring the distinction between vegetal and zoomorphic imagery.
