Bakhtiari rugs vary in designs- from garden design rugs of repeating boxes made to like like a formal Persian garden divided by watercourses and paths – to a more curvilinear scrolling floral designs influenced by the workshops of nearby Isfahan. These latter rugs use a different knot which enables a more scrolling effect. The rugs of the Bakhtiari tribe are never fine and often quite coarse but their cost always reflects this. A pretty alternative to a fine, thin city rug.

Please use your rug with a suitable underlay which will protect the back of the knots and allow dirt to fall through the rug. Vacuum sparingly, once a week is sufficient, and do so on a low power and without the rotating brush, as this strips the pile. Clean professionally at least once every five years. Turn your rug every year if possible to even out footfall patterns and sun fading. Never leave your rug undisturbed under furniture in the dark. Keep a moth trap in the room if possible.
