Antique Bijar Rugs Gallery
The exquisite colors and durability of antique Bidjar rugs makes them very desirable.
A common truism among rug experts is that structure of a rug is a more accurate determinant of its origin than is its design. The rugs from the town of Bijar demonstrate this more than any other type of rug. The techniques of the weavers who make Bijar rugs result in uniquely stiff rug. These rugs most be rolled up for transport; they are too stiff to fold. The designs of Bijar rugs share may elements of other rugs of Northwest Iran. Therefore, no one can confidently attribute a rug to the Bijar area on design alone. The unique structure identifies a Bidjar rug.
Certain rugs in this gallery are identified as Kurd Bijar rugs. These tend to have a more rustic design, a looser weave, and a greater likelihood of a wool foundation.
