Characteristics of Bakhtiar Rugs:

  1. Durability: Bakhtiar rugs are known for their exceptional durability, which makes them suitable for high-traffic areas. They are often made with high-quality wool that contributes to their long-lasting nature.
  2. Weaving Technique: These rugs are hand-knotted, and they typically feature a high knot density, which allows for detailed and intricate patterns. The craftsmanship is usually of a high standard, reflecting the weavers’ skills.
  3. Materials: The primary material used in Bakhtiar rugs is wool. The wool is often sourced from local sheep and is known for its strength and sheen. The foundation of the rug is usually cotton, providing stability and structure.
  4. Design and Patterns: Bakhtiar rugs are famous for their “garden” designs, also known as Khesti. These designs often feature a series of rectangular compartments, each filled with different floral and garden motifs, symbolizing the Persian garden. Other common patterns include intricate medallions, tree of life designs, and geometric shapes.
  5. Colours: The colour palette of Bakhtiar rugs is typically rich and varied, with dominant colours being reds, blues, greens, and yellows. Natural dyes are often used, providing a depth and vibrancy to the colours.
