This is a Bidjar rug from Northwest Persia dating from circa 1910. This rug has a center medallion and makes use of the famous Herati motif throughout which Bidjar rugs are famous for. The medallion is made with an ivory color which draws the viewers eye to the center of the rug and creates colour contrast against the darker colour palette of the rug. Bidjar rugs are known as the iron rugs of Persia because of the extremely tight weave which causes them to become very heavy and this rug is no exception to this. The border is made using interlocking yellow and blue carb motifs.
This rug is very finely hand-knotted on a cotton foundation with wool pile.
This rug is available in:
- 246 x 142 cm
