Bakhtiari Rugs

Bakhtiari Rugs

In the Zagros mountains, west of the city of Isfahan around the city Shahr-e-Kurd, reside the Bakhtiar nomads, whom make Bakhtiari Rugs. Most of them speak Persian or a Lori dialect, while others who live in the Khuzestan province speak Arabic. The rugs woven were primarily crafted by the villagers and nomads who lived in those areas. Bakhtiar men wear wide pants, a round shaped hat and a short tunic, clothes which originate as far back as the Parthian dynasty (200 B.C.- 200 A.C.). The carpets are sold under the common name Bakhtiar (also Baktiar, Bachtiar and Bakhtiari ), sometimes with a place of denunciation; Boldaji, Feridan or Saman. The Bakhtiar nomadic headman (khans) have at times had very powerful positions in Persian society. An extensive carpet production area of Chahar Mahal va Bakhtiari absorbs nomads as well as village people of changing origin.

The carpets are made of durable wool, and are beaten very hard, which makes them thick and solid and they are considered to be among the most durable of Persian carpets. While they originally started with geometrical patterns, they were exposed to the floral designs of other Persian rugs. A well-known pattern is the Khesti (garden motif) where the carpet is divided into squares with plants and animals, symbolizing the Persian garden, but also medallions and life tree-motifs occur with influences from the Isfahan carpets. Inspired, they created a unique fusion by blending the two and forming a design of their own for which the Bakhtiari Rugs are now famous for. The weavers were so experienced and knowledgeable they created their own dyes, blending them into hues that are unlike any other. Some antique Bakhtiari rugs feature especially vibrant and expressive urban Persian Rug Designs, steeped in classical beauty and resplendent with traditional, classical design elements. Often, when a Bakhtiari rug features a sophisticated composition, it will be characterized by impeccable line work and precise drawing. Detail elements tend tone crisp and distinct, with the pattern beautifully articulated. A unique style of Antique Rugs, Persian Bakhtiari rugs and carpets are an exciting style.Afshar rugs are quite distinguishable. Come and stop by our gallery to find Fine Antique Sultanabad carpets at 410 Olive.
