A mid 20th century Bidjar carpet of woven floral motifs on a midnight blue background. These carpets have been made for centuries in and around the small Kurdish town of Bidjar, also known as Bijar, south of Tabriz in the northwest of Iran. They can be distinguished by their heavy wool or cotton foundation (cotton was used in the twentieth century). As the weaver ties each row of knots, an extra weft is added and pounded down. The stiff, heavy foundation that this creates allows the carpets to withstand up to many years of heavy use. Because of this they are known as “the iron rugs of Persia”. Persian, mid 1950s.
