Bakhtiari (Bakhtyar) rugs and carpets

At least two different weave patterns are known as Bakhtiari rugs and carpets. One is woven by the Bakhtiari tribe who live in the Zagros Mountains in central west Iran. The other come from the Chahar Mahal region which is a littleĀ further south. A number of villages in this area weave the distinctive Bakhtiari designs. The Bakhtiari rugs and carpets are renowned for the famous garden design, a geometric pattern depicting panel's incorporating trees and plants divided by irrigation channels. The best quality Bakhtiari rugs and carpets are known in the trade as Bibibaff.
