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.
