BAKHTIARI rugs are named by the Bakhtiari tribe, one of the most ancient,
noble, and well-known Persian tribes, found in the area southwest of Isfahan in
south Central Iran. This once nomadic tribe, was famous . After they establishishig a settlement in the
the Zagros region of the Chahar-Mahal area, their production of carpets
increased at the start of the 19th century. This region is known for having very
luxurious wool that produces excellent carpets. The center of the Bakhtiari
weaving area is now southeast of Isfahan in Shahr-Kurd. Today, there are about
200 villages in this area, which make some of the most exquisite carpets. In
reference to age, the older pieces usually have a checkerboard or garden pattern
decorated with trees-of-life, birds, flowers and animals, in which can be
realistic and even abstract. Rug and carpet pieces in this region are known for
the weavers' artistry and creative skills. The best known Bakhtiari rug design
is the Garden carpet with flower- and tendril-filled compartmental designs
(Kheshti Design). Another important Bakhtiari design consists of a decorated
field with lattice designs and floral ornaments that are as distinctly executed
as the well-drawn medallion carpets of Saman.
The principal colors include many shades of white and ivory, as well as various reds, rusts, browns, greens, yellow ochres, beiges and occasionally dark blues are used. Vegetable dyes generally produce a harmonious range of color, especially in the older pieces and in the Bibibaff. Even though the wool is obtained from the weaver's own sheep, the quality of the same rug can vary, ranging from dull to extremely glossy. The pile is clipped medium-high to high. The warp of the foundation is made of cotton and the weft is made of wool. The Turkish knot is used in greatly varying knot densities, ranging from very coarse to medium fine. In addition some very beautiful floral patterns are still produced in the principal town of Shahr Kurd with the Persian knot, showing long, intricate medallions which portray the similarities of an earlier Isfahan style.
