Persian Bidjar carpets: (Genuine Bidjar)
Bidjar is the name of a small Kurdish town in western Iran.
The Bidjar carpet is a type of Persian rug. Its main feature is its weft. it is generally formed of five threads, four of wool, fairly loose and a cotton central, which is taut. The weaver must use a special comb to tie the knots, which gives a very tight and heavy appearance to the carpet. They are known as iron carpets as they are resistant in addition to their beauty.
  These carpets have a sober elegance and find their place in most environments. Durability and beauty of the colours are features of these carpets, dark shades for the fields (night blue, amaranth red, bottle green) and bright colours for the patterns!

Legal notice concerning the import of Iranian rugs:
This rug was imported to Europe before 1 January 2015.
