Woven into existence in the late 19th century is this exquisite antique Persian Bidjar rug has that beautiful and rare ivory ground that is to be celebrated, but that's only the beginning of the amazing value that this Persian masterpiece offers! With a truly one of a kind, mesmerizing, and hypnotic design, the linear pattern of the medallions and motifs that has a truly whimsical vibe to it as does the array of colors. The borders have multi-tiered bands with wonderful botanical motifs that adds drama to the neutral ivory ground encapsulating it perfectly.
Pound for pound, Bidjar rugs are the heaviest rugs of Persia, known as the iron rugs. They are very heavy and were woven to last for generations. This amazing rug is stiff and sturdy with a low pile. The stiffness is due to the fact that the rows of wool were woven with tight knots and beaten down by the skillful hands of the women on the loom which produced density inch for inch.
Handwoven with wool that has been dyed with organic materials, such as vegetables, flowers, and plants, further proof that natural dyes provide the best coloration. This beauty is impressive and mysterious with its intricate designs and lovely color story, adding style and sophistication to any room it calls home. The art of this rug is a lot of amazing drama and if you've been looking around for a while, you'll likely note that there's not another one out there like it. Proud to extend this phenomenal Persian at superior value. Thank you for choosing to shop small.
