Hand-knotted Persian Bakhtiari 100% wool Ghandi rug with an all-over multicolor geometric pattern; measures approximately 5'3" x 8'10". Marked to back. In good overall condition. The Bakhtiari tribespeople of the rugged Zagros Mountains are famed for their perilous annual migrations over snow-capped peaks and for their lustrous, deep-toned antique tribal carpets displaying grand scale, cornucopian designs. Although they traditionally produced only geometric designs, the Bakhtiarisâalong with the Armenian, Kurdish and other weavers of the Chahar Mahalâwere also influenced by the floral carpets of the Persian cities, especially those of nearby Isfahan. This gave birth to an innovative and distinctive stylization found in these fantastic and durable rugs.
