Antique Bidjar rug

Circa 1890
249 × 136 cm 8’2” x 4’5”


A wonderful vibrant and rich coloured antique Bidjar rug, with a large scale floral pattern in amazing pinks and greens! You could almost mistake this as a contemporary design, but it was woven over 120 years ago! The weavers used amazing patterns and dyes back in the late 19th century!

A great antique rug in wonderful condition, professionally washed and supplied with our sturdy anti-slip rug underlay.

Visit our barn showroom soon to see this rug up close and over a 1000 more.  We hold one of the largest collections of antique rugs and contemporary carpets in the UK.

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 or the ‘Mina-Khani’ floral design all over as in this example.

We offer the service of viewing any of our carpets & rugs in-situ in London, Surrey, Hampshire the UK & Europe by appointment.  Request a home visit to see this beautiful antique Bidjar rug in-situ.
