Bakhtiari rugs are perhaps one of the finest of the Persian tribal rugs. They are hand-woven by the semi-nomadic Bakhtiari tribes people residing in Central Iran. A checkerboard field pattern of squares representative of a Persian garden decorated with bird and animal images, is typical of the Bahktiari design theme, although sometimes geometric and floral patterns are also woven. This colorful garden design which is typical of a Bakhtiari expresses the Persian love of beauty in contrast with the harsh landscape in which these artful rugs are made. The garden design of the Bakhtiari, is a favorite of many Persian rug enthusiasts because it is a very humble and muted artistic expression that isnīt too overwhelming. An authentic Bakthiari Persian rug is truly unique and priceless and it will last a very long time.
