The reverse knotting detail style of design and colours used indicate that this carpet is of the origin as stated in the Guarantee Line. Bijar, a town almost exactly due west of Tehran in north-west Persia, has given its name to the surrounding area and is a term used generically to describe all the rugs from the many villages that are marketed both through Bijar itself and through Tehran. The principal characteristic of Bijar rugs is great thickness and durability; whereas older examples were single wefted, those made in the last 70 or 80 years have tended to be double wefted. All are symmetrically knotted, and the rows of knots are beaten down at the time of weaving to create this dense and extremely hardwearing fabric. This is a Kurdish area and the designs, therefore, follow the Kurdish repertoire of floral and geometric motifs and often have large and somewhat eccentric medallion designs that commentators have tried to associate with various ancient Kurdish belief systems, including shamanism, Zoroastrianism, Islam, and several somewhat odd cults of their own. Almost a distinct type from the rugs and carpets that make up the market in Bijar weavings today, are the late 19th century and early 20th century examples often marketed under the name Garrus. This was the name formerly given to Bijar and was also the family name of the ruling family of Kurdish khans. Several carpets with inscriptions to members of this illustrious family have survived and some of these are woven in a manner distinct from later Bijar rugs. Although almost all are symmetrically knotted and double wefted, a small number have been recorded with single wefts and, very occasionally, silk wefts, either bleached white or dyed red. This Bijar carpet displays the characteristics associated with traditional Bijar weaving. The design as seen here referred to as the 'herati' design is frequently seen in Bijar weavings. The 'herati' design is an all over repeat pattern formed by a number of individual floral elements combined together and then repeated. It is normally made up of a flower head framed by a rhombus linked to a set of four leaves, and then repeated to form an all over design. The origins of the 'herati' pattern date back to the late 16th and early 17th century, and is seen in Safavid Persian Court carpets of that time. The design can be seen in varying scales. The early versions tend to display bold open renditions of the pattern details, whereas this example is based on a popular style as seen in the 'revivalist' period of Persian woven art dating from the late 19th century, through to the present day. The 'herati' pattern has always been a popular pattern in decorative furnishing rugs and is created in varying guises throughout the Eastern rug making world. The colours are from a characteristic extensive Bijar colour palette, the rich jewel like tones of which suggest that this carpet was probably made between 1950 - 1960. Values in CAD: 3500 - 4800.

Please Consider

Our rugs are truly unique and crafted with care. However, please keep in mind that their vintage and handmade nature means they may have imperfections and signs of wear, which actually add character. Each rug is woven by hand, so it may not have a perfect rectangular shape.

Rest assured, we do our best to capture the rugs' true colors in daylight photography. However, they might appear slightly different in low-light environments. If you'd like, we're happy to provide photos taken in lower lighting or answer any questions. Your satisfaction is our top priority!

Feel free to reach out if you need more information or assistance.


For every rug you buy here, we plant one tree.

Choosing vintage and antique rugs reduces waste, lowers demand for new materials, and extends product lifespan, thereby reducing your carbon footprint.

Our rugs are crafted using natural and recyclable materials, promoting sustainability and environmental friendliness.

Care Instructions

Vacuuming regularly means you won’t have to get it professionally cleaned as often and it will definitely look nicer and last longer. For best results, vacuum front and back side of rug, from side to side, avoiding fringes.  


Avoid spills, but if they do occur, blot them immediately with a cloth, then spray water on the spot of the spill and blot again, and repeat as needed. Spray white vinegar on pet urine to help break down the enzymes that cause the bad odour.

Professional Rug Cleaning:

When needed, get your area rug cleaned. Otherwise, the dirt begins to grind, which is extremely damaging to the materials. The usual time to have your rug professionally cleaned is about 5 years, but you should trust your instincts. When your rugs appear to require cleaning, follow your instincts and have them washed. Hand knotted carpets should never be dry cleaned or steam cleaned.  Wall to wall carpet cleaning companies are usually not a good option.  Always choose professional rug cleaner who specialises in cleaning fine, handwoven carpets.

Rug Pads:

Using a rug pad with your vintage rug will extend its life and provide extra traction and protection for your floors. More info
