Bidjar rugs are a type of Persian rug. They are nicknamed the "Iron rug of Persia" due to their dense pile and unique weave which make them long-wearing. Common patterns include large center medallions, the herati design, or fine arabesque designs. Red, Blue, Brown and Ivory are common colors found in Bidjars. They are mostly woven with the Turkish knot and modern Bidjars are woven on cotton foundations. Copies of traditional Bidjars are woven today in India. Note the very fine weave of the small Persian Bidjar below.
