Decorum Rugs Collection:

40″ by 60″ Semi-Antique Persia Bidjar is also called Bijar is made by the Kurdish Shia tribe who use extremely good wool from sheep who benefit from the high copper content in the mountain waters.  The rugs are the sturdiest and most tightly woven rugs in Iran.

These rugs are known as the iron rugs of Persia because of the extremely compact weave of the knots such that they are so dense that the rugs can usually only be rolled and not folded.

This rugs is approximately 75 -80 years old, but barely shows any wear.

The knots are tied on 2 levels, where the second foundation warp is pulled underneath the first warp such that when you look at the back of the rug it has a corduroy  appearance.  The rugs are colorful with animals, people  and all possible vegetable colors to produce some of the most delightful rugs in Persia.  This is true of the Shia’s where the Shiites usually show no animals or people or green in their carpets.

This is your chance to own one of these historical pieces.

This is a wonderful one of a kind piece that can be used on the floor for many decades to come.
