Oriental Rugs Glossary

Near Zanjan in North West Persia Kurds make these Goltog rugs (also: "Gholtog")which resemble Bijar rugs in their quality. The solid grip is just like with a Bijar and is caused by the remarkably dense foundation of these rugs. Goltogs are mostly made in darker colors where there is almost always a Hexagon as the dominant element in the field. Altogether the Goltog meets very high demands in quality and tasteful design and definitely competes with the Bijar rug.
