Named for a town in Persian Kurdistan, Bidjar also refers to rugs produced in surrounding villages. The color palate is rich and jewel toned. The designs depict the Kurdish influence of the area: floral and classical geometric motifs, as well as the use of large, whimsical medallion designs. All of the knots are symmetrical and the rows are beaten down during the weaving process, which produces a dense compact fabric.
