President Trump Meets Pope, But What Really Stands Out Is This Beautiful Antique Bidjar Rug

pope-trump-antique-bijar-rug-santa-barbara-design-center

President Trump Meets Pope, But What Really Stands Out Is This Beautiful Antique Bidjar Rug. This beautiful Antique Bidjar rug bellow their feet is handmade in Northwest Iran. It is the finest of Persian rugs with beautiful design and woven with Kurdish knot technique. It is rich in colors and its amazing pattern creates a highly desirable rug

Bidjar is a town in Persian Kurdistan located in north-west Persia. The Bidjar name is also used to describe the antique rugs that were produced in the many villages in the surrounding vicinity. The Bidjar is noted as being the stiffest carpet made; they are very heavy in relation to their size, and very thick and durable, hence they are called Iron Rugs of Iran. All of the knots are symmetrical and the rows are beaten down during the weaving process producing a dense compact fabric. Given their thickness and construction Bidjar rugs can be difficult to fold. The many designs depict the Kurdish influence of the area and often floral and classical geometric motifs are employed as well as the use of large, whimsical medallion designs and air loom in the making.

Origin of Antique Mohtasham Rugs

At Rugs and More we carry the largest Selection of antique hand made rugs. From Persian, Classical, Modern, Antiques and much MORE ! Rugs pay tribute to the beauty of their countries of origin. Whether exotic or traditional, tribal or modern, our rugs weave stories through intricate patterns, compelling colors, and touchable materials. These museum quality pieces are a testament to superior craftsmanship. Our rugs, textiles, tapestries, flat woven rugs, Kilims, and needlepoints are hand-knotted and woven in silk and wool of the highest quality. Both rare and unique in design, these collectibles quickly become family treasures that can be passed down from one generation to the next

One of the sign of original Mohtasham rug which named “Mohtasham Father” and also showing in this particular rug is the silk edge rapping. Other indications are the fine weave and fine short cut pile, also the special magnificent colors. . “Mohtasham Father “ refers to Kashan rugs made from c.1882 until 1914 woven in a particular atelier with a specific quality wool like English and Australian Merino wool, made by Hajji Mollah Hassan Mohtasham and his skilled weaver. These rugs had a velvety short pile and tight knotting. Around 1900, his son, Mohtasham the Younger took over the work shop and continued the practice of fine knotting. The design and colors radically changed, although the wool remained the same until 1930 when Persian sourced yarn was used.

Mohtasham is one of the most revered weavers of Kashan. His rugs are some of the highest quality Persian weavings. The town of Kashan located in central Iran between Isfahan and Tehran is often referred to as the greatest weaving center in western Persia. Mohtasham Kashans ranges from 200 to 300 knots per square inch, with the older ones tending towards the upper end of the scale. An interesting thing about Mohtasham Kashans is that the oldest examples tend to have the highest knot counts but a certain crudeness of design.

Since the 3rd quarter of the 19th century and for about 30 years, the finest and most delicate rugs of wool and silk were woven by arguably the most respected ustadan (master weaver), Ed Din Mohtasham. These rugs are noted for their use of purple and ruby red silk bindings for the selvedges. They are characterized by a particular style, color and use of imported merino wool. Whether signed or unsigned, antique Mohtasham Kashan rugs are considered the crème de la crème of all antique Kashan rugs.
