Description: Persian Bakhtiari rug was hand knotted in Iran of 100% natural wool on a cotton foundation. The rug has full wool piles and is in excellent condition. Beautiful colors and made with excellent quality. No holes or repairs, nice and soft. Gorgeous design and a near perfect rectangle. This rug was acquired directly from an established rug merchant. Clean and ready to be enjoyed. Current embargoes against Iranian goods by the U.S. should cause the value of these rugs to increase.

  • Notes: The Bakhtiari rug is a major artform of the Bakhtiari tribe, located in Chahar Mahaal and Bakhtiari, Iran. They have been weaving rugs and exporting them around the globe since the early 19th century. Originally woven by nomadic Bakhtiari, most authentic Bakhtiari rugs are woven in Bakhtiari settled communities. However, Bakhtiari patterns are copied in other weaving centers in Iran, Pakistan, India and China; so that a place name came to be used to refer to the place of origin of the pattern and quality of the rug, rather than to its place of actual manufacture. Bakhtiari rugs are based on a cotton foundation (warp) with a wool weft usually taken from the herds of the producing tribe. This leads to unique carpets that differ depending on the characteristics of each tribe’s wool. The wool can range from dull to extreme glossy and the resultant pile is clipped medium to high. Older rugs, often coveted by collectors, can be extremely costly. Patterns are usually floral or garden inspired. The Khesti, an established garden motif is perhaps the most well-known rug design. The carpet is divided into individual squares with animals and plants acting as symbols. Generally, they include shades of white, reds, browns, greens, and yellows. Natural dyes produce variations in color, which are particularly obvious on older rugs.
