CarpetVista Collectible

A semi-antique (ca.1940) Bijdar with a floral medallion and Herati motifs.

The Bidjar carpets are often referred to as the Iron carpets of Persia due to their denseness, durability and strength. The city of Bidjar lies in Northewestern Iran and has been known as an important weaving center since the 18th century. The name Bidjar is also used in relation to the carpets that are produced in the surroundings of the city. The Kurds also inhabit this region and their influence is clearly seen in the designs of the Bidjar carpets which are available in a wide variety of patterns and designs.

Bidjars are considered to be amongst the most stiffest of the Persian carpets, and this is achieve from the technique that used to weave them. When the weavers knot the carpet they beat and pound the weft threads together with a comb and this results in a very compressed and tight pile. Bidjar carpets are double knotted using a symmetric knot and the older Bidjar pieces have a warp and pile of wool, but contemporary pieces normally have cotton foundations.

This semi-antique carpet has a floral medallion set on a red field with herati motifs with a palmette border.
The Bidjars being very durable and hard-wearing are arguably one of the most sought after and highly acclaimed carpets. This striking piece which is over 70 years old is in very good condition and would make a good solid investment.
