Southern Persia

Qashqa’i jajims are woven in the warp-faced plain weave technique, and are composed of two joined panels each containing an array of polychrome vertical stripes of various widths. The result is a wool flat-weave with a mirror image pattern having a central stripe that is considerably wider than the others. What makes this example rather unique is the teal green background, as well the generous width of the vertical stripes. The quality of the individual dyes, which include a wonderful indigo blue and a clear coral red, are indicative of an early vintage.
