Bahktiari (Bactiyari) rugs are a type of tribal Persian rug. Color schemes include deep, dark, rich tones of red and blue with yellow, brown, green and ivory highlights. Common designs can include the garden design of paneled medallions which are filled with a variety of patterns including trees, flowers or animals similar to the design in the rug pictured below. These rugs are often woven with Turkish knots on a cotton foundation in rich colors.
