The Shiraz rug shares many of the same features to the Quashgai design and is also made in South Western Persia.
They are made by Nomadic tribes which move twice a year between different pastures. Each piece is unique with design typically quite simple and geometric including a central diamond lozenge motif. They are hand knotted freely without following a pattern and taught from generation to generation.
Characteristically the colours used in this design include shades of deep red combined with dark blue and elements of green and white and usually made using 100% local wool with a mixture of both vegetable and chemical dyes.
In 1sqm of Shiraz rugs there would be around 200000 + knots giving a mid-density pile.
Care Instructions: Specialist cleaning recommended.
Use suction vacuum only, avoid rotating brushes which could damage your rug. We recommend using rug hold underlay to help protect your rug from moving and colour transfer.
