Persian Bidjar (Bijar) carpets and rugs

The town of Bidjar is located in Persian Kurdistan, North West Iran. Rugs and carpets from this area are reputed to be the hardest wearing of all the Persian rugs and carpets produced today. They can be so heavy and compact that it can be impossible to fold them. This is due to the knotting technique, one of the two warps surrounded by each knot is directly under the other and the weft is beaten down to produce a very robust structure. Modern Persian Bidjar rugs and carpets are usually found with the Herati design which is also used in the rugs and carpets produced in the Persian city of Tabriz.
