About the piece

A very unusual yellow ground colour from Armani baft, a village on the other side of Jolfa river, between Bakhtiari Shahr kord and the city of Isfahan where an Armenian population were settled, adopting and sometimes mixing some of the most famous Persian designs with their own traditional design. This extremely rare sample of Cypress tree design in yellow ground is one of the best samples seen from this region. Bakhtiari carpets or Bakhtiari rugs derive their name from Bakhtiari tribe. In the Zagros mountains, west of the city of Isfahan around the city Shahr-e-Kurd, reside the Bakhtiar nomads. The tribe resides in the South West of Iran. It is one of the oldest tribe engaged in the manufacturing of rugs and carpets. The distinctive feature of Bakhtiari rug and carpet is that it uses many colours that are bright and give a charming appearance to the carpets. These carpets are particularly known for the amazing variety of colours they used. Bakhtiari rugs have the capability to fill your living and Drawing room with the splendour. The colours used deep reds, bright blues, navy, green, brown, ocher, and beige. Texture is both coarse and fine depending on the wool used. The texture is glossy and fine if soft wool is used. The pile is weaved tightly and is clipped medium-high to high. Warp and weft are generally made of cotton.
