Description

A rich antique Bidjar rug with deep indigo blues and great variety of reds in the medallion.  Some paler green dyes can be seen in the corners and border design.  Woven around the early part of the 20th century the condition is fairly good with minimal wear.  The ends and sides are secured and it has been professionally washed by ourselves ready for use on the floor.

. . .

 An attractive durable rug with good ‘abrash’ dye change.  Please view all the additional images to inspect the rug close up.

Rugs from Bidjar are very tough due to their structure which consists of usually five weft threads, two are loose wool threads followed by one taut cotton thread, then a further two loose wool threads. These are tightly beaten together against the knots, creating an extremely tight, compact rug. They tend to be floral in design, with the ‘Herati’ fish design commonly used in the main field and border.
