Bidjar is a town in Persian Kurdistan located in north-west Persia. The
Bidjar name is also used to describe rugs produced in the many villages
in the surrounding vicinity. The Bidjar is noted as being the stiffest
carpet made; they are very heavy in relation to their size, and very
thick and durable. All of the knots are symmetrical and the rows are
beaten down during the weaving process producing a dense compact fabric.
Given their thickness and construction Bidjar rugs can be difficult to
fold. The many designs depict the Kurdish influence of the area and
often floral and classical geometric motifs are employed as well as the
use of large, whimsical medallion designs. The color palate is rich and
jewel toned making the Bidjar a highly desirable rug sought after by

Bijar rugs, produced in Northwest Iran are among the finest of
Persian rugs by virtue of their design and technique. They cannot be
identified readily by their patterns, for their repertoire is quite rich
and varied. They are distinguished by primarily by their weave, which
is perhaps the densest and most durable of all oriental rugs. Bijar
carpets were produced in a classical medallion format as well as in
allover designs and pictorial or garden patterns. The quality of their
wool is lustrous and soft, the drawing at times classically precise or
wildly tribal. Some are attributable to Kurdish weavers living in the
Bijar region.
