Quashqai Pelas
Wonderful color and precision of design combine to make this an outstanding Antique Quashqai Pelas. Though dynamic, the design of vertical bands is absolutely balanced or symmetrical about a central column of red. Narrower stripes to either side function as a subtle border of sorts. Within each vertical band are finer stripes of delicately contrasting color that impart an aura of depth and richness to the woven surface. In addition, the underlying warp threads in red are allowed to show through the wefts, creating a multi-colored pepper and salt effect that can only be seen from up close.
