Traditional Qashqai rug made by Qashqai nomadic tribes, typically featuring a central medallion design and animals, natural colours and dyes, hand-spun wool and thick, soft pile. Also sometimes referred to as Shiraz rug as these rugs are often traded in the city of Shiraz in southern Iran.

Other rugs of this type are available, but as they are all made by nomadic tribes and not organised manufacturing operations they are all very individual and different.

Other sizes are available too, but very limited as these rugs were historically made by nomadic tribes to sleep on so the sizes are similar to sizes of beds.
