This is a hand-knotted Bidjar rug, made of durable, natural materials. The way it's knotted and the diversity in patterns make this rug unique and emphasise the authentic and traditional character.
This Bidjar was made in India, originally Bidjar carpets were made in Iran.
Bidjar is located in the west of Iran. Bidjar rugs are designed both with and without a medallion; this is called a Herati pattern. Bidjar rugs are made of high-quality wool on a cotton warp. They are often thick and compact rugs with the pile pointing almost straight up. Which is why Bidjar rugs are excellent for regular use, with extremely high durability.
This is a used rug, which has become more beautiful and richer in character due to the natural ageing process.

Measurements: Approx. 291 x 197 cm.
Main colour: Red

Accent colours:
Cream, orange, yellow, pink, green and blue shades.
Rich gloss; lots of nap.

Signs of wear:
Single spot of inconspicuous moth damage (photo 12); fringe can be cleaned.

This lot will be shipped by registered post with track & trace.
