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.

The special wool with which this Oriental rug has been made is called "Kork" wool. The Persian word "Kork" means "soft down". This expression is used for particularly fine and soft wool for very high quality rugs, especially for expensive rugs made in esteemed manufactures like e. g. in Kashan. It is common to add the word "Kork" to the provenance name as in e. g. "Kashan Kork".
