The Qashqai confederacy of tribes weave carpets in and around the Shiraz area of Iran These carpets display boldness and energy in both colour and design which reflects the woman's strong presence and freedom in the families and in the tribe. They use strong, glossy, long-stapled wool in typical colours of orange, blue, red and soft green. Designs are usually geometric with strongly nomadic influenced motifs of animals, amulets and protection symbols.

Fabulous Collection

One of the most fascinating,entertaining and educational carpet experiences I've ever had.Ruth has a fabulous collection of rugs and kilims and it's clear that she loves them all. She knows the story behind each one and enthusiastically shares the background about the weaver and the meaning of the work.

Ruth is very welcoming and there was never any pressure to buy.

I did take home a couple of lovely pieces and I will definitely return.  I highly recommend her shop !
