The dyes used are derived from nature and natural stones, no chemicals what-so-ever are used. Qashqai rugs are often copied, however, Qashqai rugs originate from Iran and Northern Afghanistan and are completely made by hand and dyed using natural dyes only. Created mostly by the females of the clan, these very talented ladies create these patterns from memory. These rugs are sometimes made from wool only and the more luxurious rugs contain a combination of wool and silk. These handwoven rugs, depending on the size can take from 6 months to 2 years to create. This wonderful craft should be cherished and preserved.
