More about the provenance Bakhtiari, antique | 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 carpet has a so called "garden design" or as in Persian "Kheshti". The design of Oriental "garden rugs" represents sophisticated garden layouts from a bird's eye view. The oldest garden rugs date back to the 16th century. The legendary rug "Spring of Khosrow" of Khosrow the Sassanide king served as a template. The rugs are divided into fields which are separated by water ditches. The ditches in which often fish and ducks are swimming are flanked by bushes and flowers. Altogether garden rugs are an expression of the special Oriental love of floral beauty which peaked in fantastically laid out gardens.
