Hand Knotted Bakhtiar 5.6ft X 8ft Carpet
In the Zagros mountains, west of the city of Isfahan, Iran reside the Bakhtiar nomads. An extensive carpet production area of Chahar Mahal va Bakhtiari absorbs nomads as well as village people of changing origin.
The carpets are sold under the common name Bakhtiar (aka Baktiar, Bachtiar and Bakhtiari). The carpets are made of durable wool, and are beaten hard, which makes them thick and solid and they are considered to be among the most durable of Persian carpets. A well-known pattern is the Khesti (garden motif) where the carpet is divided into squares with plants and animals, symbolizing the Persian garden, but also medallions and life tree-motifs occur with influences from the Isfahan carpets.
