Bakhtiar is the name given to two types of rug: firstly to those made by nomads in the Zagros Mountains west of Isfahan in central Iran, and secondly and more importantly to the rugs made by settled villagers in the area. Few nomadic Bakhtiar rugs are seen on the market: the most common are perhaps the bags, which combine pile and Kilim work. The village rugs are commoner: they are made in several dozen mountain villages whose inhabitants are of Turkish or Persian or Armenian origin. They are sold mostly in the Isfahan bazaar. The main villages are (in the Chamar Mahal district) Ben, Ghaveh, Rokh, Baba Heydar, Harun, Samun, Sefid, Dasht, Chaleshotor and Shalamzar. Most Bakhtiar rugs are made in large sizes on vertical or horizontal looms; 2 x 3 m is the commonest size, though much larger sizes are found. The most common designs are medallions and the so-called 'garden' design, where the field is divided into square compartments each with a different floral design. This design has ancient antecedent s. The Designs fare often rather rustic, as large blocks of colour with heavy outlines are used. Most of the colours fare from locally produced vegetable dyes, resulting in a very harmonious effect.FREE DELIVERY ON THIS RUG within UK mainland.
