More about the provenance Bakhtiari | Iran

The name originates from the times when the landlords of the area were Bakhtiaris. Today Bakhtiari rugs are mainly made by peasants, therefore Bakhtiaris are not nomadic rugs as often mistakenly assumed. Bakhtiari rugs are of high uniqueness and durability.

This Oriental rug has been treated with an "Antique Finish" wash. This wash includes not only the actual cleaning of the carpet but also its processing (ennobling) which represents an increase in the carpet's value. Carpet lovers often appreciate the "patina", the antique look which is reached by ageing, usage, and light exposure. Therefore this wash has been developed which actually accelerates this procedure and turns the colors of a rug, which often still feel and look "raw" after the carpet production, into softer and older looking colors. By this special technique a soft and silky feel is added to the Oriental carpet as well. This washing technique requires experience and skill since otherwise carpets could easily be damaged by it. In this case the washing was implemented perfectly.
