Bijar style hand knotted silk rug

Bijar carpet is known as the "Persian iron carpet", as the name suggests, because Bijar carpet is the most durable hand-woven carpet. This type of carpet is woven by Kurds who live in Bijar, a small city in northern Iran. Bijar is known for its thick blanket surface, sturdy structure and heavy weight. 

There are often other origins imitating Bijar but unsuccessful because Bijar uses a unique wet weaving frame technology. The so-called "wet weaving rack technology" is to keep the knotted wool and warp and weft threads moist by spraying water during the weaving process, which will temporarily shrink them so that they can be woven very tightly, and the blanket will become tighter and tighter after drying. Sturdy. With exceptional durability, the patterns of Bijar carpets are mostly continuous patterns.
