More about the provenance Bijar | Iran

The provenance is Bijar, North West of Iran. Bijar rugs are mainly knotted by Kurds who are the main population of Bijar (in the province of Kermanshah). Bijar carpets are known to be the most solid and high quality Oriental carpets.

This Bijar has a "Herati" or "Mahi" design (has its origin in Herat, ca. 16th century, short for "Mahi to Hos" meaning "fish in the pond"). A rosette is surrounded by a rhombus which is again surrounded by four bent leaves. The name "Mahi" meaning "fish" was given to this design because the leaves resemble swimming fish.

This Oriental rug has a so called "open design". Any rug in which the medallion is surrounded by a large area of a plain one-colored field and if at all have corner patterns within the field. The open design is currently experiencing a come back and became very popular.
