    Greatly admired by connoisseurs of tribal weaving's, 19th century Persian Khamseh rugs have strong similarities to the weavings of the nomadic Qashqai which share their attention to saturated color and intricate, stylized geometric motifs. Khamseh was a century confederation of tribes in Southern Persia whose rugs are related in style and geographic origins to the Qashqai andKhamseh rugs are especially known for their idiosyncratic use of a diverse collection of tribal and zoomorphic devices. The most prized Khamseh design is the “murgi” motif, usually interpreted as a dense field of up to one hundred flying birds, incorporated within and around one to three diamond shaped medallions. Like other nomadic weaving's from the mountainous Fars region, the ornamentation is often continually varied, and augmented by naturally dyed hues of a saturated intensity.  19th century examples are noted for the use of unusually high-quality, lustrous wool in their construction. The traditional Khamseh palette is deep and rich featuring glowing mid-tone to dark blues and rusts.
