Bidjar Persian carpet: (genuine Bidjar).
Bidjar is the name of a small Kurdish town in western Iran.
The Bidjar carpet is a type of Persian carpet. The main feature is its weft. usually made up of five threads, four in wool, rather loose, and a central one in cotton, tight. The weaver must use a special comb to tie the knots, which gives the carpet a very tight and heavy appearance. They are known as iron carpets in addition to their magical beauty.
   These carpets have a sober elegance and are suitable for most environments. The durability and beauty of their colours are typical of these carpets, dark and sometimes light shades (midnight blue, amaranth red, bottle green) and lively colours for the patterns!
