Internationally recognized as the ”iron carpet of Persia”, Bidjar carpets are very dense and heavy with excellent wool quality. During production the weavers compress the pile so strongly that it almost stands vertically up. The weft and the knots are beaten with heavy wood or metal combs resulting in an extremely compact pile. This prevents gravel and other small particles from getting into the pile.
Bidjar carpets come in a variety of sizes and it is possible to find everything from Zaronim (150x100 cm) to larger sized carpets. The carpets are made with double knots (Turkish knots), and can be found with many different patterns and designs. The most common being the Herati (flower like with four leaves) or Mahi (fish pattern) designs.
Bidjar carpets are generally red and blue with beige elements adding a robust and elegant charm to any room in which they are placed.
Our collection of Patina carpets is comprised of older Persian carpets that all show signs of natural wear and ageing. The carpets are carefully selected with the intention of preserving their cultural heritage and breathing new life into them. All our Patina carpets are washed before undergoing a thorough inspection. If any signs of damage are found these are attended to, and if the pile is unevenly trimmed it is gently polished down to achieve an even pile and add a natural sheen to the carpet.
The result is a one-of-a-kind carpet that still possesses all the qualities of an older hand-knotted carpet. A beautiful carpet with a genuine feel that has intentionally been allowed to retain a distinct patina appearance: to be discovered and admired by yet another generation to come.
