    This  rug is of very high-class and are sometimes referred to as "the iron-carpet of Persia" due to their extreme length of life and durability. The carpet is thick, very tight and is heavy with excellent wool quality. The carpet is knotted with a double-knot and sometimes woven on a wet loom which makes these rugs one of the strongest woven Persian rugs. 
    The name Bidjar denotes the meaning of durability to many rug specialists. The weavers use their heavy comb, made of metal and wood, to beat the weft and the knots so that the pile almost stands up. The surface of the pile, therefore, becomes very compact, which prevents gravel and other small particles to be pressed into the carpet. The most common pattern is the Herati (also called fish pattern), but also medallions and floral motifs occur. Antique Bidjar rugs are one of a kind collector rugs which will appreciate in value as they are very hard to come to by.
    RUGS WOVEN BY NOMADS: Nomads move continuously and do not stay permanently in one geographic region.They weave handmade carpets on collapsible looms. Due to that fact there may be slight variations in weaving and the different shades of wool with sometimes uneven in shape giving it a real feeling of a genuine nomadic handicraft. The weaving is made from memory and it depends on each artisans momentary inspiration. The workmanship is of high quality from hand spun wool to preparing the natural dyes from organic plants and roots to dye the wool in different colors in preparation for weaving. Persian Handmade rugs have a timeless appeal which transcends the whims of fashion, and are one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly flooring options available. Each unique design represents the artistic vision and fine craftsmanship by the hand of the weaver.
