A very large Bidjar carpet centred by a double lozenge design filled with the traditional small floral motifs in deep reds and blues. The name is taken from Bidjar, or Bijar, a small Kurdish town in north western Iran where the carpets are made many in the surrounding villages. As the weavers tie each knot they add an extra weft and use their heavy metal and wood combs to beat the weft and the knots down which makes the carpets strong and very durable and this stiff, heavy foundation creates carpets that can withstand many years of heavy use. Because of this they are known as “the iron rugs of Persia”.
Persian, mid 1950s.
