BAKHTIARI Rugs Properties:

Visibility: The best known BAKHTIARI rug design is the Garden carpet with flower- and tendril-filled compartmental designs (KHESHTI Design). Another important BAKHTIARI design consists of a decorated field with lattice designs and floral ornaments that are as distinctly executed as the well-drawn medallion carpets of Saman.

Quality: There is a wide variation in quality and prices among carpets from this region, ranging from consumer carpets up to excellent collector's pieces. Hori carpets are generally of lower quality, while Bibibaff, Chapel Shotur and Saman pieces are good to excellent.

Size & Shapes: Small and Large rugs up to 1.50 x 2.20m and occasionally narrow runners are produced. Room-sized carpets up to 4 x 5m are woven in workshops.

Color: There is great variety of color in the carpets produced in the several hundred villages of this area. The principal colors include many shades of white and ivory, as well as various reds, browns, greens, and yellows, but relatively little blue. Natural dyes generally produce a harmonious range of color, especially on older pieces and in Bibibaff.

Texture: Even with wool obtained from the weaver's own herd, there are still varying degrees of quality, ranging from dull to extremely glossy. The pile is clipped medium-high to high.

Foundation: Warp and weft are of cotton.

Knots: The Turkish knot is used in greatly varying knot densities, ranging from very coarse to medium fine.

Price: Old and antique BAKHTIARI rugs are sought as rather rare collectors' pieces. Nomad carpets have a special charm and are distinguished by their beautiful patina. Old Bakhtiari are high in price, but newer ones are fairly reasonable. You might pay as low as $4-$18 Per Square Foot (PSF) for a nice BAKHTIARI rug.

Where are BAKHTIARI?

Bakhtiari  Nomads tribe

LORESTAN
BAKHTIARI rugs are named for the BAKHTIARI tribe, one of the most ancient and well-known Persian tribes, found in the area southwest of Isfahan.
This formerly nomadic tribe, of which Sorayawas perhaps the most famous daughter, has since become settled.

After they established a settlement in the the Zagros region of the Chahar-Mahal area, their production of carpets increased at the start of the 19th century. This region is known for having very luxurious wool that produces excellent carpets. The center of the BAKHTIARI weaving area is now southeast of Isfahan in Shahr-Kurd, and rugs of lesser quality are known by their place of manufacture, such as Bibibaff, Saman, and Luri.
